Vocational training skills changes a life

Dear Project Supporters, 

Thank you for your support that will help multiple vocational trainees. Young girls at the Center are working hard to create a better future for themselves and their families. Technical and vocational education and training (TVET) is one of the three main priorities outlined by UNESCO and has been identified as the focus for the most important annual report on education, the Global Monitoring Report, in 2012.

Young girls are being trained and empowered in Hairdressing and Entrepreneurship skills. These skills are an effective intervention that combats poverty and increases the strength of local economies further uplifting the young people of Rwanda. See examples in the photos below from the current trainees at the Vocational Training Center.

Your generosity is truly making an impact on the participants at Aspire Rwanda. The Young girls are learning skills that will help them be self-sufficient and provide for their families. We welcome your continued support in making a difference in the lives of more vocational girls. We encourage you to donate monthly here. Even a few dollars a month will go a long way. Please also share this with your contacts and invite them to consider supporting this ongoing project.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at aspirerwanda@gmail.com or rshyaka@aspirerwanda.org

With great appreciation,

Aspire Rwanda Team

You are not only impacting women in this project, but also impacting the whole community when you give to this piggery project. Your monthly giving counts a lot.

We have many women waiting but means are really limited. It is for this reason that we are appealing for more donations to enable us to assist the remaining women.

Women Empowerment for Sustainable Development

We are proud to report first concrete, tangible results of women empowerment

A big thank you to all our donors and supporters who have so generously continued to support our efforts to help poor and low-income farmers to earn more and feed their families

Please continue to give your support generously

Progress till date:

 We have identified 100 farmers and the participants are equipped with tools to respond and address issues such as SGBV, women, children and as well as understand reproductive health, the prevention of common infectious diseases, and good nutrition to improve their family’s health. As our beneficiaries will respond to these issues, they will change their lives and the lives of those around them fostering healthier and more peaceful families and ultimately communities.

 How did we achieve this? 

-We used participatory method in which participants created the opportunity of reciprocity communication between trainers and trainees.

-We used brain storming strategy for finding solutions through means of stimulating ideas from participants.

-We created small groups of participants then met and contributed to any suggestion or idea that strikes them.                                                                                                                                                                                                          

-Participants were sensitizing on having Children legally registered as well as being legal married.

On-going efforts 

With your generous support we will continued to enroll and support more beneficiaries to improve farmers’ livelihoods.
