Rwanda Menâ€™s Resource centre (RWAMREC) is a Rwanda national leading organization in addressing gender related issues using the Men Engage approach. It was created by 9 like-minded men, prompted by; 1) the need to empower men and reach out to other men so that we promote gender equality practices through positive masculine behaviors; 2) to promote effective cross-gender dialogue in ending sexual and gender-based violence; 3) to enhance menâ€™s understanding and support to womenâ€™s empowerment initiatives; 4) adoption of healthy and non-violent behaviors that men need for their sustainable socio-economic development and promotion of healthy families.
The vision of RWAMREC is a Rwandan peaceful society where women and men share roles and responsibilities of raising families, and governing society in equality and respect of human rights.
