About Us

Gwiza Woodworkers is a Rwandan Company that specialises in joinery and woodwork.

In woodwork,

We build furniture and other items from wood. In joinery, we build house fittings like doors, windows, counters e.t.c from wood.

Gwiza Woodworkers, the idea, started in 2016, when the founder, Silvus Kidiavai, was looking for furniture. Being dissatisfied with what the market was offering he decided to make his own. Wait!! wait a minute!! A question, how did Silvus know how to make furniture?

Silvus came to Rwanda as a missionary in 2015. In his missionary training stint, in his home country Kenya, his trainer, Victor Oduru had taught him the basics of the woodwork. With time he developed a love for furniture done in natural wood. In his own words, “I have never seen wood so smooth and shiny until I saw furniture built by Victor.” It is interesting to note that,

Victor had also learned woodwork from his trainer in missions, an ace in woodwork and construction called Moses Buyu. The heritage of woodwork does not stop there, Moses too learned woodwork from a Navigator’s missionary based in Kenya in the ’70s and ’80s. We might say on a light note, they are seriously following in the footsteps of Christ literally!

Our Mission:

GWIZA AIMS TO ACHIEVE ITS VISION BY ACTIVE CLIENT ENGAGEMENT, SOURCING OF SUPERIOR RAW MATERIALS, AND EMPLOYING EXCELLENT WORKMANSHIP.

Our Vission:

TO BE THE PREMIER PRODUCER OF BESPOKE WOODEN FURNITURE AND HOUSE FITTINGS IN EAST AND CENTRAL AFRICA, FOR THE JOY OF THE CLIENT AND TO THE GLORY OF GOD.

We believe that superior, custom furniture and fittings start with the initial contact with the client, who is the custodian of what he/she wants. The client explains what they want, we aid in this process by looking at the client’s space and advising on the best way to go about it. In some cases, we work on computer-generated graphics to fine-tune the client’s idea.

Next, we source the raw materials from the local markets. Raw materials employed in any project are paramount in the production of a superior product. Another key ingredient in superior furniture and fittings manufacture is workmanship. As the word suggests, it means finding the right person for the right job.
