Education

Komera Canada sponsors scholars with full room, board and tuition at a public boarding school in Rwanda. During school holidays, scholars recieve training on becoming agents of social change and leaders within their communities. Learn More

Community

Komera Canada, together with its sister organization, Komera, builds a local community of support for the scholars. At school, a scholar meets with her Komera mentor and fellow scholars once a week. At home, her parents work with the Komera Parent Co-operative. They receive training on how to launch small businesses to help support their families and provide modest school materials for the scholars.  Learn More

Sport

Komera Canada is unique because of its emphasis on empowerment through sport. We annually host the Komera Global Run in June. Additionally, scholars are encouraged to exercise outdoors in the mornings at conferences. We believe in positive body image through sport. Learn More.

Our Impact

Our sister organization, Komera, started working with 10 young Rwandan women in 2008. Seventeen women have graduated from Komera programs and currently there is currently a class of 70 Komera Scholars in public upper secondary boarding schools around Rwanda. Komera Canada supports 10 Scholars.
