Description of your main WPS related activities

The Mukomeze Foundation improves the living conditions of survivors of rape and other forms of sexual violence during the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda. By supporting these survivors physically, psychologically, materially, socially, economically and spiritually, Mukomeze contributes to their empowerment. This allows them to provide for their own existence and gain hope for a dignified future. Projects are typically focused on agriculture, handicraft, education, and entrepreneurship, while also individual support is provided.
