AKWOS in partnership with WOMEN WIN organized a 2 day workshop of training Women Coaches on Goal Curriculum. These coaches needed this training so that they strengthen their skills on the strategy of Empowering Young Girls on the following Modules: BE YOURSELF, BE HEALTHY, BE EMPOWERED and BE MONEY SAVVY. The Goal Curriculum Activity Guide simplifies the strategies of the activities needed to help girls understand better how to move forward. As the focal point of AKWOS come from all Provinces of Rwanda and went back with plan to use these modules in different schools starting with girls from 12 years old and above.

During the 2 days of the training, coaches were proud to share their daily experiences with young girls and from the new Goal Curriculum module their Skills were enriched. With the good performance of Women Win representatives (Manu and Nicole), AKWOS coaches were excited to learn new strategies that they will use for the Young Girls Empowerment. During the training, Mme Suzan Falatko, the Public Relations Officer at the U.S Embassy came over to encourage the trainers to keep up the passion they have to improve the well being of Girls preparing them to become the future leaders that will play a big role in the development of Rwanda as a Nation and across the Region. During the closing ceremony, AKWOS coaches promised to use the Goal Curriculum Modules as soon as they start school and this will help them to measure the impact.
