The Kigalian is a digital media platform that offers creative, informative and educative stories about Rwanda—with mission to enrich people’s lives with stories that inspire, empower and unleash potentials.

Every week, the site features forward-looking profiles, commentaries and reviews, infographics, podcasts (coming soon), and works of photography—about Rwanda. It covers the intersection of latest trends in social media, culture, arts, science and technology, business, entertainment and lifestyle.

The Kigalian published by Ejo Group, a Kigali-based social entreprise that specialises in social media and (digital) content marketing.
