Who is a Komera Canada Scholar and how is she selected?

A Komera Canada Scholar is a talented young woman who has succeeded in school but is no longer able to attend due to financial barriers. She is selected by the local government, school representative and the Komera social worker.

What does a Komera Scholar receive?

A Komera Canada Scholar receives a holistic scholarship and also additional support programs including: social entrepreneurship training, life skills training and leadership training. Our goal is to help build the future female leaders in Rwanda.

How do I support Komera Canada Scholars?
