IHS Rwanda Ltd started operating in December 2013. We subsequently acquired the tower assets of MTN Rwandacell Ltd, and purchased the entire shareholding of Rwanda Towers Ltd (formerly a subsidiary of Airtel Rwanda Ltd). These transactions mean that IHS Rwanda Ltd now owns and operates the majority of telecom towers in Rwanda.
Headquartered in Kigali, IHS Rwanda has regional offices in Nyanza, Rwamagana and Rubavu.
In order to continually maintain and improve network quality and efficiency, IHS has invested in state-of-the-art network monitoring and power systems for sites in Rwanda.
Key Sustainability Programs
Since 2018, IHS Rwanda has partnered with the Imbuto Foundation, supporting over one hundred disadvantaged students with scholarships. We have extended our relationship with the Foundation to include a mentorship program between the students and the IHS Rwanda senior management team.
We are committed to supporting Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education, and has partnered with LEAPR, a community of scientists and technologies, to launch the Space and Telecom Fellowship Program. Under this program, we provide opportunities for work experience in our Kigali office helping students develop a passion for telecoms and ICT.
We continue to take part in the country’s commitment to keeping its communities green and clean and host “Umuganda” initiatives together with communities living around our tower sites. In 2019, this included cleaning the area surrounding the memorial centre in preparation for the 25th Genocide commemoration ceremony.
We have continued in our commitment to the Generator Recycling Program through which the company donates refurbished generators to local hospitals, schools and orphanages most in need.
