Program areas at Komera

Leadership center: Komera is funding the construction of a leadership center in the rwinkwavu sector in rwanda. The center will provide programming for the entire community, with a focus on supporting women and girls. The center will be a space for educational courses, health and counseling, and businesses development for the greater community. The organization anticipates the center will benefit nearly 30,000 people living in the area after it opens in august 2022.
Health: health and wellness is deeply ingrained in the work at Komera. The organization has a number of programs focused on sexual and reproductive health, emotional support and sport at primary and secondary schools for both boys and girls to come together on an equal playing field, learning gender norms and dynamics of power, and using sport as a tool for confidence building and teamwork.
Education: the organization sponsors scholars with full room, board, and tuition at a public boarding school in rwanda. During school holidays, scholars attend workshops where they receive training on reproductive health, career, counseling, leadership development and how to be leaders within their communities. Once students finish school, they attend the post-secondary transition program (pstp). The pstp trains them in english, information and communication technology, small business development, and helps them apply to universities. The organization also supports the university education of select scholars.
Community development: the organization builds a local community of support for the scholars. At school, a scholar meets with the organizations mentors and fellow scholars once a week. At home, parents work with the Komera parent co-operative. They receive training on how to launch small businesses to help support their families and provide modest school materials for the scholars.
