Nyamirambo Women's Center, Kigali

#5 of 67 in Tours in Rwanda
Class · Lesson / Workshop
NWC was founded in 2007 as a self-help group and quickly grew to become a center that offers free education for women in the Nyamirambo neighbourhood. Today women can join the center for classes in English, literacy, computer, sewing and handicrafts. NWC also organises workshops on Gender Equality, Women's rights and gender-based violence. In 2014 a community library was opened offering books in Kinyarwanda, French and English.

In an effort to develop income-generating activities for the center but also for the women of the community, NWC developed a community-based tourism project that offers guided cultural walks in Nyamirambo and Umutima, a new line of household and children's products.

  • Had some custom make up bags done here and they came out great! Feels good for my purchase to help fund locals in need.
  • As a black woman from America, this tour was empowering. To see women who look like me handle their business by being innovative inspired me to do better in my own country. The walking tour was very informative , lunch was delicious , and the handmade items at the shop were simply beautiful. To top that, the women at the center were friendly as everyone in Rwanda. I don’t regret spending my day with the ladies at this center. Highly recommend.
