À propos de ce logement
Large room with private bathroom and shared kitchen.
By staying at the Tubahumurize Women’s Centre you'll get a feel for living in the safe and bustling neighbourhood of Kabeza. Your money will fuel the centre's counselling and training programs.
The room is part of Tubahumurize Association’s main building. Tubahumurize is a women’s association that provides trauma counselling, vocational training and various other programs for women in Rwanda. Each weekday, from 8:00 – 17:00, about 30 women are found on site, learning embroidery, sewing and quilting skills, while crafting the beautiful products that we sell at our shop.
Each day begins with singing at 8:00, so you certainly won’t need an alarm clock during your stay. However, the weekend mornings are quiet and the premises are activity-free.

Échanges avec les voyageurs
Shema is one of the core staff members at Tubahumurize and the main contact person for Airbnb guests. During weekdays (8:00 – 17:00) he can be found at the centre, and he is also available for questions and arrivals outside these hours (his house is conveniently located next door, so if you have any problems or questions, he is your guy!). Shema speaks English, French, Swahili and Kinyarwanda.
There is also a security guard at the center 24 hours a day. He will be happy to help you, but speaks only Kinyarwanda.
Kabeza is a happening and peaceful neighbourhood on the east side of Kigali. There are lots of shops and restaurants nearby, but this neighbourhood is less touristy than some so you’re guaranteed to have an authentic Kigali experience.
The quickest way to get around in Kigali is with our famous moto-taxi's. For about 1,5 dollar (1000 Rwf) they'll take you to Kigali's city centre (15 minutes). Of course, all other destinations are also possible and prices simply depend on the distance.
There is also a bus service (no. 103) running between Kabeza and the city centre (250 Rwf, 45 minutes).
A taxi stand is very close to the house.
The distance between Tubahumurize Association and the entrance of Kigali airport is about 1,5 km. This is the perfect place to stay if you have to catch a flight!
Internet is available through a plug-in modem (USB-connection).
Ingredients for a simple breakfast are there for free (tea, coffee, butter, jam). Let us know if you want to use it and we'll make sure there is fresh bread as well.
Laundry service can be provided for a small extra fee, price depending on the quantity.
A mosquitonet is available.
During the weekdays guests are requested to respect the activities of the center. Observing and participating in activities is totally welcome, but only after verifying with a staff member.
Si vous annulez jusqu'à 5 jours avant votre voyage, vous recevez un remboursement intégral, frais de service compris.
As a director of operations of Tubahumurize Association I'm dedicated to improving the lives of others. I hope that through Airbnb more people will visit our wonderful place and enjoy Kigali and through that contribute to the work of Tubahumurize.
