Summary

Aspire Rwanda provides hard-working young people with the skills and confidence to make their own choices which allow them to become self-sufficient.

Challenge

In the areas that we serve we have met many young girls high school drop outs unable to find employment and affected by extreme poverty. We would therefore like to expand our services to this group and continue a program that will help young women improve their livelihood through vocational skills training.

Solution

Girls Empowerment program (GEP) will connect vulnerable young women with Vocational Education training (TVET). Through this program, Aspire Rwanda will identify and sponsor vulnerable young girls who would like to pursue TVET program that can be completed within one year. Selected young women affected by poverty and unemployment will be interviewed, supported by Aspire Rwanda. The program is designed to build confidence and plant seeds for future educational growth and development of livelihood

Long-Term Impact

Aspire Rwanda is dedicated to find ways to make the program sustainable over the long term. This project will reduce the number of girls dropping out of school. 200 girls will be protected and trained to allow them to get jobs, lift out of poverty which will provide their own well being and of their families. To implement this sustainable program, Aspire Rwanda is looking for individuals or organizations passionate about helping young people, specifically in gaining the necessary skills
