Our sister from Rwanda has completed her one year training. After the training, women in Rwanda have reported changes in 4 crucial areas:

  • Women earn and save money: Women report average personal earnings of $0.88 per day at graduation, compared to $0.38 at enrollment.
  • Women develop health and well-being: 95 percent of participants report practicing family planning at graduation, compared to 83 percent at enrollment.
  • Women influence decisions in the home and community: Nearly 100 percent of participants report participating in household financial decisions at graduation, compared to 96 percent at enrollment.
  • Women create and connect to networks for support and advocacy: More than 87 percent of participants report sharing information about their rights with other women at graduation, compared to 15 percent at enrollment.
