Komera builds self- confident young women through education, community and sport. We believe if Komera fulfills its mission, young women in Rwanda will have the confidence to lead positive social change in their community, experience the joy of self-discovery, and realize their own personal potential.
Education: Komera sponsors scholars with full tuition, including room and board at a ‘’ public’’ boarding school in Rwanda. Komera also provides intensive leadership and social entrepreneurship training during school holiday.
Community: Komera builds a local community of support for the scholars, at school, a scholar meets with her Komera mentor and her fellow scholars once a week. At home her parents work with Komera parents Co-operative. Whereas Komera is unique because of its emphasis on empowerment and positive body image through sport. We host the annual Komera global run in June. Komera is a non-profit 501(C)(3)
