Uwezo Youth Empowerment (UWEZO) starts with a high gear.

by Bahati Satir outh Omar

Founder of UWEZO.

Uwezo Youth Empowerment is a non profit youth organisation driven by building the capacities of children and youth with impairments and other disantages in a Rwandan Community.

The organisation envisons a society where children and youth with disabilities and other disantaged fully participate and enjoy their dignified life.

in this case, UWEZO mobilizes youth people with disabilities to join effort and build their capacities towards reducing barriers in the society that limits their participation.

UWEZO believes that if youth with impairments are given equal chances of participating in the society their work can be valued as well.

in this case, UWEZO is progressively instilling volunteerism spirit among youth with impairments as an option for not having jobs and also removing attitudinal barriers in the workplaces.

a two days was organized to promote national volunteering among youth with disabilities on 26th and 27th March 2013 at Rainbow Hotel, Kigali.

The training was sponsored by VSO International Rwanda and the National Union of Disabilities’ Organizations of Rwanda (NUDOR).

45 youth with different disabilities were trained in National volunteering and many organizations shared their experience like the Rwanda Guides Association, Volunteers from the Humanitarian Organisations etc..

The President of the National Council of Persons with Disabilities Mr Gaston RUSIHA assured participants of their support.


Aluta continua!!!

  1. I kindly appreciate what you do,I got to know you recently through a missionary called ERIN, I also have a passion towards people with disability, I normally work with them individually in equipping them with self confidence,encouragement and I show them THAT they also can do some thing for their self development. I also talk to them the Healing message which helps them to value themselves.
    I would kindly request you to allow me work with you as a volunteer partner who has the same passion as yours.
    Thanks A lot , together we can do the great.
    May the lord bless the work of you mind.
