    Thanks for the noble job you are doing to this nation. However, some of us are not comfortable by being ‘forced’ to make all our enquiries about your school in English. I suspect the guy responsible for the enquiries is either Ugandan or Kenyan. Isn’t it not possible to have a rwandese handling enquiries? I stand to be corrected because i hate NO one!

    Thanks Perma for your question. RFI values all comments made in regard to our services. You got it right, we need someone who can also speaks Kinyarwanda. We are currently recruiting one. You might be surprised that, the response to the next call you make to us will meet all your requirements.

    Hello. The institute requires students to submit in english because most of our visiting mentors are english speakers. This is a rwandan institute with international mentors. Most of our films are made in kinyarwanda. Will be waiting to see you at the class if you get selected. God bless and good luck

    This gonna be a timely blessing for Rwandans easpecially,young people who are interested in modern Literature and owe the zeal and ambition to change the negative attitudes of people who are blind about AFRICA.Personally as a proffessional teacher,you giving me a great and miraculous opportunity to teach the Masses instead of a single class of learners.

    Thank you so much for the great and encouraging work your are doing.God is going to bless the work of your hands and you will never regrate why you set off that great idea.May you keep that fire burning please till Hilly wood will rub shoulders with holy wood and other famous woods across the earth,i remain your passionate and ambitious participant and comrade.
