The Shrine of Our Lady of Sorrows in Kibeho, Rwanda, is the only sanctioned Marian sanctuary in Africa. The Rwanda Development Board, the government agency in charge of tourism, is pushing Kibeho as a tourist destination, and as such, plans to pave the dirt road in the next two years. The government is also encouraging private investors to build hotels and other tourism-related infrastructure.
