Nyamirambo, Rwanda

Walking Tour of Nyamirambo

Explore one of Kigali's oldest neighborhoods and learn about the inspiring work of the Nyamirambos Women's Center (NWC). The walking tour begins with a traditional snack, a quick Kinyarwanda language lesson, and an introduction to the Women's Center and its activities. It then weaves through the streets of Nyamirambo, where your guide will introduce you many friendly locals. You'll visit a women's hairdressing salon where the adventurous type can get a free braid; go into a family compound to pound cassava leaves; stroll by two mosques and a lookout view over Kigali; and into a tailor shop to feel the fabrics you'll otherwise see styled on the streets. The tour concludes with a traditional lunch made and served in the home of Aminatha, NWC's best cook.

Nyamirambo Women's Center

Locally Owned Nonprofit

This Rwandan NGO was by 18 women living in Nyamirambo, Kigali. Together they created a project which aimed to address gender-based violence, gender inequality and discrimination. They provide education and vocational training to women who do not have the means to pay for such training on their own, so that they can gain better opportunities for employment. The organization started using tourism as a way to employ & educate women in the community by including them in viilage tours, cooking classes, and weaving workshops.
