Village of Hope/Rwanda women network

Kigali, Rwanda

Rwanda Women’s Network (RWN) is a national humanitarian Non-Governmental Organisation dedicated to the promotion and improvement of the socio-economic welfare of women in Rwanda through enhancing their efforts to meet their basic needs. The Network came into being in 1997 taking over from its parent organisation, the US-based Church World Service (CWS), which had initiated a two-year program (from 1994 to 1996) in the country following the 1994 genocide. Todate, RWN caters to survivors of sexual and gender-based violence across the country in the recognition that women and children bore the brunt of the genocide, and remain the most vulnerable and marginalised groups within Rwanda civil society. The Rwanda Women’s Network implements three core programs. These include provision of health care and support, education and awareness programs on human rights and legal procedures, socio-economic empowerment and institutional capacity building for the Rwanda Women’s Network. It offers appropriate training for the women in the respective program areas, with peace and reconciliation being the ultimate goal of all its programs.
