About the women we work with in Rwanda
Our work in Rwanda
In Rwanda, we offer our year-long training programme for women, as well as specialised vocational training to cooperatives formed by programme graduates. The Urugo Women’s Opportunity Centre in Kayonza is an innovative space with a training farm, classrooms and workshops for women to practise their skills.
In response to the ongoing crisis in the region, Women for Women International is working with local organisations in the KRI to support Syrian and Yezidi women who have been forced to flee their homes as a result of war and conflict.
Since 2004, Women for Women International – Democratic Republic of Congo has served more than 91,000 women through our year-long programme.
Since 2000, Women for Women International – Nigeria has served more than 60,000 women through our year-long programme in Enugu and Plateau states.
