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.Use our Kigali travel itinerary planner to arrange your visit to Nyamirambo Women's Center and other attractions in Kigali.
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.

Beautiful stuff. Some of the nicest things we have seen in Rwanda. Really worth a visit the women who work there are very talented so if you are looking for something that is well made it is definitely worth a visit. We ended up buying all our presents from there
This is a nice place to buy traditional clothes made in Rwanda. It is not far from the University of Rwanda, nyarugenge campus. Near this center, there is a car free zone where you can get good coffee, green tea and fast food.
