The City of Kigali is made up of three districts namely Gasabo, Kicukiro and Nyarugenge. It is presently inhabited by approximately 1.2 million inhabitants. Kigali is 70% rural with a population which is relatively young- the youth make up about 60% and women make slightly more the 50%.

Through the lens, Kigali’s view means a lot to the people of  Rwanda and  photographers. The reconstruction of the city and the country has taken a long journey from 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi which destroyed everything in Rwanda.

Despite bearing the brunt of the genocide’s unspeakable horrors in 1994, Kigali has been the center of Rwanda’s nation-building efforts.
