The Chapel is a symbol of unity.

Connecting the two ethnic groups, the locals with their land, this life with the divine; connecting the earth with the sky.

A perimeter wall made of clay bricks produced from local soil and fired on-site forms the atrium, nave, and presbytery.

A wooden canopy provides shelter, allowing the light and rain to enter the chapel through atriums.

The two elements create a sense of belonging to oneself but also being part of something greater, of this fertile land that has allowed generations of Rwandans to have a life here.

Together the two elements form the Chapel of unity.
