Dorman Coffee Rwanda, an East African coffee producer Friday unveiled nine renovated classrooms of a primary school in Kanjongo sector, Nyamasheke District.

Located in a district that produces the most coffee in the country, Ruheru St Augustin Primary School is surrounded by hills dotted with coffee trees and most of the children’s parents are coffee farmers.
