CREATE CONVERSATION, SPREAD OUR MISSION
At Beauty of Rwanda we are committed in making a difference to the lives of rural Rwandan women. We pride ourselves on our adherence to the principle of economic empowerment and support the world fight for gender equality. It is our belief that women have the right to opportunity and to earn their own income. It is their basic human right to work freely as part of their countries economy and we have made it our mission to help these women formulate a self-sufficient enterprise to which they can earn a fair wage to live the happy life that they deserve. If you think female empowerment is important, join us in the conversation! Visit our website to read and share our goals as well as follow our blog to learn further about our organisation, its impact and our values.
SHARING IS CARING
Whilst it may seem trivial, social media has a HUGE role and impact in creating conversation and promoting the cause and enterprise of these rural Rwandan women. One like, share, retweet or comment acts as a falling domino, sparking others to act. It creates conversation, promotes the education of important issues such as that of gender equality and gets people to notice the significance of rural Rwandan women and how in supporting their enterprises, real social and economic change can take place. Therefore, when you like what you see, share it! Sharing content on Facebook and Twitter is a great way to spread the word and help others along in their journey to get involved.
