We’re busy moving forward with our high-engagement incubator, helping women at the grassroots level develop and sustain their own micro-NGOs.
Here’s a snapshot about some of the exciting new developments happening on the ground in Rwanda:
THE NEXT ACADEMY FOR CONSCIOUS CHANGE
We anticipate initiating our next Academy for Conscious Change with a cohort of venture teams focused on water issues in October. Stay tuned for more.
This past January, Global Grassroots launched its first geographical expansion from Rwanda into Northen Uganda to target women survivors of the reign of terror of the Lord’s Resistance Army. Our first cohort of 40 change agents representing eight venture teams are now in the process of their venture development work. Our newest staff from Uganda, Colombus Onoo and Celine Auma, traveled this month to Kigali to train with our Rwanda office, led by Senior Program Officer, Gyslaine Uwitonze and Program Assistant, Josiane Isingizwe. Their training included exposure to our existing venture teams and the delicate methodology we use to guide venture development and inspire self-sufficiency without imposing our own ideas. We look forward to the opportunity for our venture teams in Uganda having the opportunity to exchange with our Rwandan organizations too.
We remain deeply grateful for your support, as our ability to continue to support the growth and impact of these teams would not be possible without you. We are excited about our expansion into Uganda, our adaptation of our work for a younger audience of vulnerable girls and our upcoming Academy for Conscious Change focused on water issues. We hope you will continue to contribute to our work, so that we may help vulnerable women become leading change agents.
