In Rwanda, “Komera” means “be strong, have courage.” Komera is a global leadership incubator for young women dedicated to building an international network of community leaders. We created Komera in rural Rwanda, in collaboration with Partners In Health, to assist girls who have the courage and desire to pursue secondary education, but lack the resources to do so.

We believe that young women have the right to lead change in their community, to experience the joy of self-discovery, and to realize their potential. As a leadership incubator, we work locally to build a global network of inspired young women taking action towards self empowerment. 
Through providing comprehensive scholarship packages, which include tuition for boarding school and health insurance, Komera supports young women with important supplies needed for them to successfully achieve their academic and personal goals. Additionally, Komera offers mentorshipleadership development and social entrepreneurship training to each scholar. Using sport as a tool to empower and connect people around the world, Komera creates a space for shared experience and awareness. Take action here, today!
