As in many countries around the world, women in Rwanda face a number of challenges: discrimination, unequal rights, poverty, low social status, low literacy rates, limited access to education and greater risk of HIV/AIDS infection. Traditional and cultural codes often result in girls being taken out of school early to help with income generating activities or agricultural labour and are more likely to be married at a young age.

WOMEN EMPOWERMENT VOLUNTEER PROGRAM IN RWANDA

Become a business development or a women empowerment volunteer in Rwanda. Working with local women, our target is to develop opportunities and network with local businesses and organisations to promote women empowerment. As you volunteer for a women empowerment program, you are doing something wonderful for women who are less fortunate in Rwanda. You’re helping women from disadvantaged communities achieve a better quality of life by providing them the tools to find sustainable solutions for their problems.

This women empowerment volunteer project in Rwanda looks to tackle this inequality and improve the quality of life for women in marginalized rural and semi-urban communities by providing economic stability.
