Rwanda Men’s Resource Centre (RWAMREC)



Rwanda Men’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 men’s understanding and support to women’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.
RWAMREC’s core mission is to promote gender equality through reconstruction of a non-violent identity of men, adoption of healthy masculine behaviors and men’s empowerment to be positive and supportive partners, role models for other men and change agents in promoting healthy families and women’s socio-economic development, eradication of sexual and gender-based violence, positive fatherhood and men’s health in Rwanda.
