About Us

MISSION: In Rwanda, "Komera" means "be strong, have courage."Komera builds confident young women through education, community and sport.

We created Komera, in rural Rwanda to assist girls who have the courage and desire to pursue secondary education, but who lack the resources to do so.

VISION: We believe if Komera fulfills its mission, young women in Rwanda will have the confidence to lead positive social change in their community, experience the joy of self discovery, and realize their own personal potential.

As a leadership incubator, we invest in inspired young women taking action towards self empowerment. We create the space for shared experience, education, and leadership training, and we use sport as a tool to empower and connect people around the world.

VALUES:

1. We create opportunity and promote personal choice

  • Provide opportunities for education
  • Provide opportunities for economic and social improvement
  • Promote space for personal fulfillment.
  • Ensure that the scholars are aware of their options

2. We take responsibility locally and internationally

  • We take responsibility to have a positive, measurable impact
  • We respond to the community we serve.
  • We have a responsibility to act in the face of an unjust world

3. We cultivate transparent partnerships

  • We build partnerships to operate our programs efficiently and sustainably
  • We rely on local support and expertise

4. We value the complete person

  • We recognize that every girl has a unique past, present and future
  • Success is not a number or the achievement of a specific metric, but rather the sum of an individual's growth and her realized potential.

5. We value sport as a tool for inspiration.

  • brings people together
  • develops dedication
  • provides energy of spirit
