In 2018, Rwanda also ranked among the top five countries for gender equality, and women like Aimeè are playing a key role in promoting and supporting female empowerment.
Aimeè is the General Manager of the Nyamirambo Women’s Center, a cooperative in Kigali.
The Centre was established in 2007 by 18 women from the local community to address gender-based violence, gender inequality and discrimination.
The Center has evolved over the last decade and now has 50 women working within the Center. Nyamirambo provides educational and vocational training, with a focus on sewing skills, to women who were not previously able to access it, allowing them to develop the skills they need to support themselves and their families.
