FAWE Rwanda in partnership with the Mastercard Foundation (MCF) in its scholarship program awarded university scholarships to 416 scholars enrolled with INES Ruhengeri on 15th November 2019.
The ceremony also included signing of an MOU with the university and signing of commitment letters by the supported scholars in an effort to commit to excel in their academics.
The FAWE Rwanda National Coordinator Ms. Antonia Mutoro called on the scholars to start assuming leadership responsibilities, saying that it will shape their future for the better.
“Leadership is solving a problem that you see that nobody else has taken care of, leadership is a self-initiative, leadership is thinking critically to make a difference, leadership is teamwork building… so leadership is that thing you do first before anybody else sees it to make a progress or to solve an issue,” she added.
The program enables academically bright, but economically disadvantaged girls to access and complete secondary and university education, in high quality institutions and increase their opportunities for better livelihoods
