Discover what’s possible when stigma is shattered by courage. 

Evas Kyomugisha is the founder and owner of Silver Bells, an autism center in Kigali, Rwanda. Silver Bells offers comprehensive services for families, including Applied Behavior Analysis, Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, and Music Therapy. 

The Global Autism Project partnered with Silver Bells in April 2019. We have since sent two SkillCorps volunteer teams to provide hands-on training to their staff. 

In today’s conversation, Evas and I discuss the stigma around autism in Rwanda, the lack of services in her community, and the pain she feels from having to turn away families who cannot afford to pay for them. She also highlights the country’s progress in social reform since the genocide in 1994. 

Evas talks about what she’s learned from working with autistic children, how she leads her multidisciplinary team, and how the COVID-19 crisis has affected services at her center.
