Trip Planner: Africa / Rwanda / Kigali Province / Kigali / Nyamirambo Women's Center
NWC was founded in 2007 as a self-help group and quickly grew to become a center that offers free education for women in the Nyamirambo neighbourhood. Today women can join the center for classes in English, literacy, computer, sewing and handicrafts. NWC also organises workshops on Gender Equality, Women's rights and gender-based violence. In 2014 a community library was opened offering books in Kinyarwanda, French and English.Use our Kigali travel itinerary planner to arrange your visit to Nyamirambo Women's Center and other attractions in Kigali.
In an effort to develop income-generating activities for the center but also for the women of the community, NWC developed a community-based tourism project that offers guided cultural walks in Nyamirambo and Umutima, a new line of household and children's products.

The walking tour with home made lunch is definitely a highlight of the town! Self-funding women center established 20 years ago supported by a Swiss lady - now turned to a high quality product producing handcraft center. Love the products from sisters and teaching of area culture in the town! Recommended!!!
So refreshing compared to the stress and pressure of the larger markets. Great local goods on offer. The seamstresses can make garments in one working day. I bought a beautiful kimono off the rack, a beach bag, hand bag, and luggage tags. There are children's clothes and beautiful soft toys and home furnishings. No pressure to buy anything. Very fair prices. They take card payments, too. A must visit.
I got almost every cute thing here during my stay in Kigali. From jewellery to baskets, clothes bags. The women here do such a great job and so creative!
Some cute bags. Zero customer service. I went and wanted some clothes made, shirt and some dresses. No one even talked to me, asked to help or anything. I bought one backpack and left. I didn’t return.
Absolutely an amazing experience! Together with my mother we started of the day with the cooking class. After lunch we did the walking tour and finished the day with the weaving class. This took almost the whole day which was great. Everything was well organized and structured. Everyone that works at the center are truly wonderful, helpful and kind people. I would recommend everyone, all ages, to visit Nyamirambo Women's Center. I will come back and do the other courses that they offer! Thank you for the experience!
