Challenge

The Rwanda has undergone sad event, the 1994 genocide in history as most are aware. This has led to many social problems with the young population to day. In addition, due to COVID19, currently there is immense poverty, but the situation becomes very worst for out of school young girls, who are at higher risks of rape and unwanted pregnancies due to poverty and lack of knowledge or other alternatives.

Solution

This project will focus on poverty reduction and behavior change. The project will be carried out by establishing and supporting a cooperative of tailoring. The cooperative will be coupled with health education initiatives. This project seeks to raise the funds needed to empower vulnerable young women.

Long-Term Impact

The project seeks to empower young women by enabling them earn income and build a community of support through the the cooperative. The cooperative participants will acquire the knowledge and skills they need to earn a sustainable income to support themselves and their families. The cooperative will save and reinvest 50% of all income-generated to insure long-term sustainability and growth of the project.
