Near our Goal & Progess to Report

Since we have first joined the Global Giving community, we have made great progress with the funds you have helped us raise. Here are our achievements i) Women football competition has been held at local, regional and national level. The sitting ball, volley ball for disabled women has been introduced ii) We continue to promote messages on unity and reconciliation, gender and women rights issues and HIV/AIDS prevention in all of our sports and community activities, including workshops. iii) An international conference on Gender Equity in Sport for Social Change was held in Kigali in April 2007. It attracted women sports leaders from Uganda, Burundi, Tanzania, South Africa, The Netherlands and Rwanda iv) Organized the first Women’s Run & Football Tournament in October 2007 as a part of the Centenary events for Kigali City with over 3000 people, including 1000 women and girls from ages 7 to 87 years old participating. Help us reach our project goal of $105,000! Once we reach this goal, we will be ready tell you about a new project which will help us spread our work in all of Rwanda and the Region.
