Mr Fidele Rutayisire, Chairman and founder member of RWAMREC.

RWAMREC was founded in 2006 in Rwanda by like-minded men [with diverse experiences in gender and other social science disciplines] after they were prompted to act on national challenges related to gender-based violence (GBV) and gender inequalities.

RWAMREC’s distinctive and innovative mission focuses on mobilizing Rwandan men to support women’s leadership; to contribute to the eradication of men’s violence against women; and to serve as role models for the promotion of positive masculine behaviors.
