Cultural and Historical
Nyamirambo Women Center(N.W.C), began as a self-help group in 2008 and has now grown into a center that provides free education to women in the Nyamirambo neighborhood. Women can now enroll in programs in English, literacy, computer, sewing, and handicrafts at the facility. Workshops on Gender Equality, Women's Rights, and Gender-Based Violence are also held by Nyamirombo Women Center. A community library was established in 2014, with literature in Kinyarwanda, French, and English. NWC established a community-based tourism project that offers guided cultural walks in Nyamirambo and Umutima, as well as a new line of household and children's products, in order to promote income-generating activities for both the center and the women of the community.
