In Rwanda, 97% of girls go to primary school, but less than 13% attend upper secondary school. Secondary school capacity is very limited, so only those with the highest test scores are able to attend. Even for a bright girl who is qualified to attend, she may face obstacles to success and graduation – including household responsibilities and safety concerns.
The Komera Project and IMB create opportunity through education by providing scholarships for secondary school to girls in Rwanda. We recognize that each Komera Scholar will need more than just her school fees in order to succeed, and therefore in addition to tuition scholarships include health insurance, clothes, school supplies, feminine hygiene products, transportation and bedding for boarding school.
Working intimately with our partners on the ground in the small, rural village of Rwinkwavu, Rwanda, we are able to identify talented you women who simply lack the financial resources to attend secondary school.
The scholars enter a three year program with the Komera Project where they receive a full scholarship and are inducted into the Komera Leadership Incubator. Throughout the program their receive mentorship, leadership training skills and Social Entrepreneurship Training.
We only offer a scholarship after we have raised 100% of the funds needed to support the student for the entire duration of her secondary school education. Help us offer a future of opportunity to even more bright young women. Donate today!
