The Komera Project supports girls secondary education in Rwanda by providing mentoring and financial support to girls in Rwanda for whom secondary education is otherwise not possible. As girls continue their education, they improve their earning potential, their health and their sense of self-worth thereby enabling them to break the bonds of poverty. The Komera Project also engages students in the United States. Students can participate in achieving the Komera mission through our Run to Rwanda curriculum, an interactive program of educational materials and sponsored fun run/walks.

Dear friends!

We are thrilled to let you know that all of our scholars had the opportunity to go to Kigali and visit schools, have lunch, do a mini tour of the city, and recieve their holiday gifts, thanks to your generosity!

We ended up taking two separate trips to Kigali as when we took the current Komera Scholars, the graduates were still completing their mandatory government service. Just over two weeks ago, our 2013 Komera Graduates went on their trip and visited the Akilah Insitute, a local training center for beauticians and Women For Women's Opportunity Center. 

In addition to the trips to Kigali, the scholars were given dictionaries, underwear and a small monetary gift to purchase whatever they felt was necessary for their own personal wardrobe. I wish all of you could have been there to see the absolute delight in their eyes as they received their gifts. Thank you!!!

We have just started the 2014 school year with 15 new Komera Scholars. We are excited to see what this year holds and we can't wait to share the news with you.

Thank you so much for your continued support, it means the world to us. 

With best regards,
