Kigali International Community School (KICS) (3)

KIGALI, Rwanda - Kigali International Community School (KICS) in Kigali, Rwanda has expanded its leadership team by appointing Dr. Chukwuma ("Chuks") Ekwelum as its new Secondary Principal. Kigali International Community School (KICS) is an international Christian school that offers a pre-k to 12th grade, North American-based curriculum that is accredited from kindergarten to 12th grade. KICS serves students from over 30 nationalities and a variety of faith backgrounds while teaching from a distinctly Christ-centered perspective. KICS is a community made up of staff, students, and parents dedicated to preparing servant leaders to impact the world for Christ.

Chuks felt a strong calling to step fully into his purpose to serve the kingdom of God during his undergraduate career. Over the years, Chuks has experienced the faithfulness and grace of Christ through teaching and developing curricula as an educator and leader to principals, teachers, and students alike. He truly believes that education is a ministry in and of itself. He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to KICS with his experience leading urban schools at the middle and high school levels and has held leadership positions in the educational technology sector. Chuks is passionate about lifelong learning, collaboration, and honoring the perspectives of others, and he’s looking forward to being a conduit of the long-established and impactful Christian education and ministry fusion at Kigali International Community School. 

Executive Search Consultant, Brian Jensen shared, “Working with KICS was an absolute blessing. Traveling to the beautiful country of Rwanda and witnessing the amazing work happening there as the school serves Christ’s kingdom is not something I will ever forget. It is an honor to now count Ben and Chuks as friends and brothers in Christ - I’m excited about the future of KICS.”
