Paving the way for Empowered Women: Today, Rwanda is seen as a case study for resilience and empowerment, especially for women. Women were historically marginalized in Rwandan society, and despite the Genocide in 1994 that claimed almost one-third of the Rwandan population, the country has seen exceptional strides in empowering women and sustaining environments. Since then, it has evolved into a revered country that uplifts, empowers and supports women through community, socio-economic development, and supportive NGOs. Rwandan leadership has helped to amplify gender equality and narrow the gender gap to the highest level of admiration and become globally revered as the most pro-woman country in the world.
