We have held several events and fundraising campaigns to support our programs. Gala 2014 was a huge success in increasing our profile in the community! We featured guest speakers Mr. Davies Bagambiire, Ms. Jacqueline Muhorakeye, and Ms. Jocelyne Alexandre from Shelter Them - all of them accomplished and engaged activists in support of women's rights. In 2014, we also hosted a special event with Jeanne Gapiya to launch our partnership with ANSS on project NAWE NUZE, and welcomed Maggy Barankitse to initiate project ITEKA.
