Nyamirambo Women’s Centre (NWC) is a Rwandan women’s co-operative-turned-NGO launched in 2007 by 18 Rwandese women living in Nyamirambo to address gender-based violence, gender inequality and discrimination.
The NWC’s headquarters houses a shop where you can buy the women’s accessories, children’s clothing and home décor and an atelier where the seamstresses make the merchandise.
Our first stop was a milk bar, a foodie tradition unique to Rwanda, these milk bars are littered across Nyamirambo.
After the brief history of Nyamirambo, Shema guided us to some panoramic sights where we got to savour the majestic views of Kigali from one of the highest points of the city.
The tour concluded with a traditional lunch at Aminatha’s house, Nyamirambo Women’s Centre best cook, where we enjoyed the mouth-watering meal as we learnt about Rwanda’s food tradition.
