Rwanda Women’s Network,Field Supervisor Jobs in Rwanda



Rwanda Women’s Network - Community Gender Based Violence Prevention Project
Rwanda Women’s Network is a Non-Governmental Organization that came into existence in 1997 dedicated to promoting and strengthening strategies that empower Rwandan women.
RWN’s mission is to work towards the improvement of the socio-economic welfare of women in Rwanda through enhancing their efforts to
meet their basic needs and this is done through five core programs i.e. health Care and Support, education and knowledge sharing; socio-economic empowerment; GBV Prevention and Response and governance and leadership.
Rwanda Women’s Network (RWN) with the support of Ministry of Gender and Family Promotion (MIGEPROF) and in collaboration with CARE Rwanda and RWAMREC has engaged in a partnership to implement the “Community Gender Based Violence Prevention Project” for 10 months (May 2017 – February 2018). The program goal is “Rwandan communities free themselves from GBV through social change and an enabling environment”.
The project will work at two levels namely at the grass roots (village level) where couples training will happen with RWAMREC leading the implementation of this work. RWN on the other hand will lead the work at the sector & district levels where activities will be aiming at creating a conducive environment for GBV prevention by engaging Opinion Leaders and creation of Women’s Spaces.
