Rwanda Women’s Network


Background: Rwanda Women’s Network (RWN) is a national humanitarian Non-Governmental Organization 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 (1994 – 1996) in the country following the genocide in 1994.
Mission: The mission of the RWN is to economically empower poor women and widows in the rural and urban areas through competent financial and managerial systems, to foster economic and social growth within households and communities, to improve health status of women and children and to promote peace and reconciliation
Programs: RWN works to implement three core programs: 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. The organization also offers appropriate training for the women in the respective program areas, with peace and reconciliation being the ultimate goal of all its programs.
