🏘️ About the Organization and Job Details

The Organization

Women for Women Rwanda (WfW –Rwanda)

Women for Women Rwanda (WfWR) is a Local Non-profit Organization committed to improving lives of socially excluded and marginalized women in conflict and post-conflict settings.


Women for Women Rwanda (WfW – Rwanda) is a not-for-profit organization legally established in Rwanda since July 2020. The organization is taking the mantle of socio-economic trainings by WfWI, an international NGO that has operated in Rwanda to serve the most vulnerable women affected by the Rwandan Genocide of 1994. The prolonged period of peace and development in Rwanda has paved the way for the establishment of the national organization, Women for Women Rwanda (and the concurrent closure of the Women for Women International-Rwanda country office).

WfWR continue to support and empower women and girls in Rwanda to break the vicious circle of poverty and social exclusion for sustainable development. We build alliances with communities and institutions to help design and deliver on innovative programs that address challenges that hinder women from accessing socio-economic opportunities that help them advance in their communities
