Guard & Driver – Local English speaking
Review from previous employer:
Dear friends, Nathan started off as a guard for our house a month after we landed in Rwanda nearly four years ago. But being a smart, honest, ambitious, hard-working, and kind person, he quickly graduated to being the backbone of our household, and took care of almost everything — from buying groceries to driving our kids to and from their daycare to managing our other staff. He was also the sole caregiver of our boys once they started going to daycare. We have tried our best to help him start an independent life, but our leaving Rwanda in an emergency has meant that he is struggling with an immediate steady source of income for his young family.
He has proven himself to be a very reliable driver for us for more than two years, and showed a lot of perseverance to get a type-C license recently, which allows him to drive trucks also. His English communication is pretty good. He can manage a budget efficiently and has even conducted market research as our professional assistant. He would prefer driving and gardening jobs (the beautiful garden in the photos below was started and maintained by him) , but can also be considered for delivery jobs (using his motorbike). A well-paid job as the driver of a bigger vehicle or truck will of course be ideal.
He is family to us; he sincerely loves our kids and our kids love him back. We can bet on his honesty and dedication with our lives.

Housekeeper & Nanny – Local French speaking
Review from previous employer:
Hello to Parents in Kigali,
We leave Rwanda in a few months and my super nanny Chantal will be available to care for a new family. She has taken care of my son since he was 5 months old (he’s 4 today), I can say I trust her with my eyes closed.
Confidently taking care of my son, she is very involved with him on a daily basis: outdoor games, various construction, reading. She is attentive to children’s needs and follows instructions very precisely.
She takes care of my son before and after school and takes care of the housekeeping when he is in school: overall cleaning, laundry, and all the daily groceries. She knows how to manage a given budget.
It is very neat and applied. She knows how to cook but very simple things: soups, fruit juice. She is used to dogs as well.
She speaks French and Kinyarwanda. She is available from the end of July/mid August, on a full time contract.
She has signed up for a long term contract with us in good working conditions and salary, given her skills I hope she can find us a good family to follow.
Do not hesitate to write to me by PM for any information, I am a reference for her, a phone call is also possible if more convenient.
