The African Women's Leadership Training Initiative is a partnership between the Women of Grace and ALARM (African Leadership and Reconciliation Ministry) that will provide a three-year leadership training program for women in Rwanda.
ALARM has selected 55 women to participate in this initiative. The group is diverse -- they come from all over the country, represent different denominations and tribes and vary in age.
We'll be gathering alongside these women three times a year over a three year period creating the opportunity for them to connect and engage with each other. During the conferences we'll be focusing on unity and topics related to leadership, trauma recovery and healing -- all within the context of faith.
You can gather additional information and to read a bit about these women and their stories on our website.
As they are trained, they will take their newly developed skills and knowledge to then lead, train, disciple and mentor other men and women. When you invest in one of these leaders, the positive impact is multiplied across their communities and the country of Rwanda.
WHY WE ARE EXCITED ABOUT THIS PARTNERSHIP
ALARM recognizes the key role that women play in positively transforming their communities. The saying “educate a woman and you educate a community” has been tried and tested over and over again.
Women across the continent of Africa have often been marginalized and sidelined as a result of socio-cultural beliefs, political circumstances and traditionally patriarchal leadership systems that have excluded them. However, the resilience and strength of many of these women, despite extreme hardship, is creating vital space for them to play a significant role in the transformation of Africa through leadership, economic development, peace building and self-sufficiency.
We truly believe that investing in these women will not only transform the spiritual climate and legacy of Rwanda, but will also reach Africa and the world.
WILL YOU JOIN US?
Would you HELP build into a leader in Rwanda? We've already completed 6 conferences and have 2 more to go.
It was a huge success and the Rwandan women are eagerly anticipating the next conferences.
OUR GOAL is to raise the funds to cover the cost for the Rwandan women to participate in these leadership conferences.
Would you commit to supporting one (or a few) of these women making it possible for her to continue being equipped and empowered?
WHAT WILL IT TAKE?
A one time gift of $300 will pay for 1 leader per conference.
$600 = 1 leader for 1 year.
OR you could consider a monthly donation of $50 to help sponsor 1 leader.
Really, any amount helps! Here's a few examples:
$15 = transportation to Kigali for the conference for 1 leader.
$30 = lodging for 6 nights for 1 leader.
$35 = breakfast for 1 leader for the week.
$108 = 3 translators for 1 day of the conference
Your contribution will fund a Rwandan leader and cover their travel to and from Kigali, food and lodging at ALARM's Training Center and all conference materials.
