Empower Girls by Entrepreneurship in Rwanda

Requested by

Youth Rwanda

Who are you trying to help? What issue are you trying to address?

Rwandan girls who did not have a chance to continue their studies gain professional training which enables them to access employment and income generation activities in order to raise the living standards in families. This project is also about informing these young girls about sexual reproductive health, family planning and HIV/AIDS prevention.

What is your project and how will it help?

Rwanda has a very young population, 63% of the population is younger than 25 years old.

The young women in the community face a great number of challenges, which compromises their future, hinders their growth and well being because of the male dominated structures in the community. The man is the only one expected to work a job, most women don’t have any say on how money is distributed. These challenges are related to education,poverty,unemployment and no income for girls.

The project introduces the education on gender, sexual reproductive health, family planning and HIV/AIDS prevention and this is followed by career counseling, small business management/entrepreneurship training to facilitate self-employment and income generation activities though creation of cooperatives of girls to enable them to become future women entrepreneurs of Rwanda. The project create a conducive environment that advocates for self employment and help to meet girls basic needs.
