Women Riders Project has made a great impact on different women in Rwanda. It is not an easy project, but the pilot showed us it is possible though it requires a lot of funds. This project has shown that women can ride motorcycles too as men do. With expenses of above $800 per woman to start from scratch and be able to ride on the road, it is huge, it requires that people join hands and support each other. On Behalf of SafeMotos Institute in Rwanda, we really appreciate your contribution and the change you brought to women in Rwanda.

Now as SafeMotos Insitute has stopped working in Rwanda, we, the team in Rwanda, are looking for a way we can start a local NGO to continue the project as it was good for women. It is for this reason, we were late to update you about the project, and we are deactivating this project for this time. We ensure you that your funds have been used in the proper way, and we hope that we approach you next time, you will support us again. May what you contributed be multiplied thousand times.

Thank you very much, we shall never forget your kindness!

Thank you again for your support. We couldn't make it without you. Women are very excited about this project, and they sent their greetings. 

Last time, I told you that we have a new office, and we paid five months. With your help, we were able to rent the other three months which will help us to finish this year with no problem. We spent $265 on the rent.

Furthermore, we have changed the way we were implementing the project, now we have partnered with 4 sectors in one of the District in  Kigali City, and we took rural areas of those sectors. They help us in the selection of women. So far, we are raising other funds so that we can be sure that once they start to study, they will be able to finish. We humbly ask you again to share our link to your friends and network so that we can collect enough money to reach 50 new women. We believe that together we can make a change.

On behalf of SafeMotos Institute, we would like to take this time and say thank you for your all help in achieving this initiative. We were able to raise $1140 in total. We really appreciate all the help you gave us. We would like to take this time to share with you a short report of how we are using the funds so far. The funds helped us to starts operations. 

First, now SafeMtotos Institute has an office in Rwanda. We were able to rent an office for 5 months. The office will help us have a place where people can find us easily. The office helped us to easily manage operations. We have spent $549.Furthermore, we were able to have 2 women go back to study how to ride a motorcycle. We hope that with the next registration, we will register them to the exam. We have paid $132. 

We highly appreciate every help you provided us. This proved to us that this project is possible.
