Research & Advocacy

The best way to advocate for girls’ and women’s rights and gender equality, is by developing evidence-based interventions and speaking up.

Through in-depth researches, studies, and experiences hinged on gender-sensitive data collection, Empower Rwanda establishes the root causes of various issues, upon which remedial advocacy interventions are developed and implemented. Our research processes include all stakeholders (girls, parents, opinion leaders, local leaders, and other community and faith-based like-minded organizations) to ensure findings and recommendations speak to the issue and the context.

Some of the issues we research and advocate for include but are not limited to; teen pregnancies, sexual and reproductive health and rights, women’s financial inclusion, and gender-based violence among many others.

Empower Rwanda empowers the girls and women to be able to contribute to the implementation of the recommendations from the research projects and to participate in decisions affecting them.
