Supporting women’s literacy and economic development in Rwanda.

What are the needs?

Poverty, illiteracy, and gender imbalance are the major problems that can be found among women in Rwanda. Those who rely solely on their husbands or traditional farming find their family struggling to meet their daily needs. There is an opportunity to empower the whole family through women.

What can be done to help?

CBM has partnered with the Association of Rwandan Baptist Churches to train local church pastors and leaders to offer educational training through community programs.

When women are given the skills and support to grow, they have an increased sense of self-worth and the wellbeing of their families improves. By empowering women to grow holistically, the mindsets of poverty, ignorance, and gender discrimination are addressed. Women who are literate, and who have had access to vocational skills training are not only empowered to help contribute to their own family’s needs but also contribute to the development of the communities in which they live and their churches. 

How will your raised funds be used?

Funds raised will support this community transformation through programming such as:

  • Parenting clubs
  • Self-help groups for both men and women
  • Technical skills training
  • Literacy education
  • Coordinator training

Your support will help women and their families in Rwanda to break through barriers that hinder them from reaching their potential physically, emotionally, and spiritually and will empower their contribution to those around them.
