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.

Terrific walking tour around a very authentic local neighborhood. We opted for the included lunch which was delicious and filling (and prepared by the cooking class just before us). Great...

Some cute bags. Zero customer service. I went and wanted some clothes made, shirt and some dresses. No one even talked to me, asked to help or anything. I bought one backpack and left. I didn’t return.
Full support for this incredible initiative that really change lives of their neighbourhood! Attend to their cooking class and join the little walking tour ❤️
