Health Care and Support

The RWN’s Healthcare Programme is implemented through the Polyclinic of Hope(PoH)and the Villlage of Hope(VoH)initiatives.

Education and Awareness

Education and Awareness raising is an all encompassing activity that includes empowerment in legal and human rights, good governance and issues on HIV AND Aids.

Social Economic Empowerment

Access to financial credit and economic self-reliance is integral to the Rwanda Women’s Network programmes.

Network and Advocacy

Networking and advocacy forms one of RWN’s important activities, as it articulates RWN activities and promotes linkages between Rwandan women and regional and international programs and/or organizations.


Rwanda Women’s Network (RWN) is a national humanitarian non-governmental organization (NGO) dedicated to promotion and improvement of the socio-economic welfare of women in Rwanda since coming to being in 1997. Over time, the organization has dedicated its efforts to strategies that empower women and has extensive experience in fostering women’s participation and grassroots responses to community challenges. To date, RWN works with various local and international partners, and plays a capacity building and facilitating role to a network of over 52 grassroots associations across the country.

The RWN is the recipient of two international awards, namely, the 2007 UN-Habitat Dubai International Award in “recognition of best practices to improve the living environment” for child-headed households and genocide widows and their families. The second award is the 2006 UNDP/UNAIDS Red Ribbon Award themed “Celebrating Community Leadership and Action on Aids”.
