Rwanda depends on agriculture, which is mostly done by women, so they grouped themselves in cooperatives and did the process of registration so that we may help them develop modern farming in order to fight poverty.
As you can see the teams that were ready to participate in a friendly match in the Northern provinces started by planting Irish potato seeds with many women that came to support the initiative that was brought over by AKWOS
The seeds were donated by Association of Kigali Women in Sports which organized the event and the winner received sports uniforms. It was an exiting moment after which the local leaders of that province donated a 5 hector land in support for the women football teams. This event took place on the 7th march 2011.
This idea came about after the workshop that took place in February 2011 on how to fight gender-based violence and campaign against poverty which was organized by AKWOS in partnership with WomenWin and Global Giving.
Many thanks goes to the donors that do their best to support our organization. You are doing great things to promote Women in Gender Equity Through Sports.
We believe that if you educate a woman, you educate the nation.
It was an exiting moment to see more than 2000 women coming to cheer the game and about 500 men in our support which never existed before.
Is it possible to get a feedback from the donors? We need to hear the generous comments and advice from our donors. Tell us what you think about our activities. Thanks for being there for us.
