Rwanda Men’s Resource Centre (RWAMREC) is an organization engaged in promoting gender equality and positive forms of masculinity in Rwanda. For effective implementation of its development programs in this area, it uses various mass mobilization and education strategies including intensive community trainings and counseling. RWAMREC has therefore different partners, governmental and non Governmental Organizations. Following is the list of Non Governmental Organizations : CARE International, Girl Hub, GIZ, Norvegian Poeple Aid (NPA), PROFEMMES TWESE HAMWE, MenCare, Men Engage Africa, Sonke Gender Justice, Promundo, UNWOMEN.


CARE International : CARE is a leading humanitarian organization fighting global poverty. We place special focus on working alongside poor women because, equipped with the proper resources, women have the power to help whole families and entire communities escape poverty. Women are at the heart of CARE’s community-based efforts to improve basic education, prevent the spread of HIV, increase access to clean water and sanitation, expand economic opportunity and protect natural resources. CARE also delivers emergency aid to survivors of war and natural disasters, and helps people rebuild their lives.


Girl Hub: Girls are Rwanda’s greatest untapped driver of social and economic growth. In Rwanda, girls are highly valued, but that value is frequently confined to a path already determined for them. A girl is often constrained by only ever having two roles: a daughter in her parents’ home, then a wife in the home of her husband.


GIZ : offers customised solutions to complex challenges. It is an experienced service provider and assist the German Government in achieving its objectives in the field of international cooperation and offer demand-driven, tailor-made and effective services for sustainable development.


NPA : Norwegian People’s Aid is the labour movement’s humanitarian organisation for solidarity. Its goal is human worth and equal rights for all, irrespective of sex, disability, ethnicity, religion, age, sexual preference or social status.


MenCare : MenCare is a global fatherhood campaign. It’s mission is to promote men’s involvement as equitable, non-violent fathers and caregivers in order to achieve family well-being and gender equality.


MenEngage Africa : Through our country-level and regional networks, MenEngage seeks to provide a collective voice on the need to engage men and boys in gender equality, to build and improve the field of practice around engaging men in achieving gender justice, and advocating before policymakers at the local, national, regional and international levels.


PROFEMMES-TWESE HAMWE : est un Collectif de 58 associations rwandaises, œuvrant pour la promotion de la femme, de la paix et du développement. C’est un cadre de solidarité et de concertation entre les organisations œuvrant pour l’amélioration de la position de la femme dans la société et un centre de services, un cadre thématique et un lieu d’élaboration des politiques et d’influences stratégiques.


Promundo : is a global leader in promoting gender justice and preventing violence in societies, communities, and homes by working to engage men and boys, in partnership with women and girls.


Sonke Gender Justice : Sonke Gender Justice is a South African-based NGO that works across Africa to strengthen government, civil society and citizen capacity to support men and boys in taking action to promote gender equality, prevent domestic and sexual violence, and reduce the spread and impact of HIV and AIDS.


UNWOMEN : United Nations General Assembly created UN Women, the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women. In doing so, UN Member States took an historic step in accelerating the Organization’s goals on gender equality and the empowerment of women. The creation of UN Women came about as part of the UN reform agenda, bringing together resources and mandates for greater impact.
