Rwanda Girls Initiative
Rwanda Girls Initiative (RGI) was formed in 2008 with the mission of creating a replicable model girls secondary school in Rwanda. The Gashora Girls Academy of Science and Technology is an upper-secondary boarding school for 270 girls, which is located in the Gashora Sector of Rwanda. RGI’s vision is that students will graduate as inspired young leaders, filled with confidence, a love of learning, and a sense of economic empowerment to strengthen their communities and foster Rwanda’s growth. RGI intends to develop a new model for investing in the education of girls in Rwanda rooted in connections to local community, strengthened by national and international partnerships, and supported by diverse and sustainable sources of income.
