FabLab Rwanda was established in May 2016, by ICT Chamber in partnership with Rwanda Development Board (RDB), Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), Ministry of Education, SolidWorks Corporation MIT-CBA, and Gasabo3D who followed through taking lessons learnt from efforts of supporting Software Innovators (at KLAB) to execute on His Excellency’s recommendation to put in place a Fabrication Laboratory (FABLAB) to support Hardware Innovators in Rwanda.

FabLab Rwanda is a space for members to turn innovative ideas into products specifically in the hardware and electronics domain. The space provides a platform for capacity building and integration of hardware skills with software knowledge and quickly bringing Rwandan innovators closer to the Internet of Things era.


During the past months since the establishment of FabLab Rwanda, different projects have been coming up, and these were ideas thought about and being transformed into prototypes by FabLab members, among which includes:

Vertical Take-off and Landing (VTOL) Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV/Drone)
Intelligent Robotic Face Tracker
Solar vehicle
