Our Mentorship Partners in Rwanda

Young Women with Impact (YWI)

YWI was founded by Jeanne d’Arc (Jede) Umulisa with the vision of transforming the lives of young women and girls across Rwanda by inspiring them to become “more than just women” in every sphere of life. Jede is passionate about youth empowerment and is a motivational speaker. She is currently the Director of Planning for M&E in the Ministry of Gender and Family Promotion and has a background in public policy and economic development, international economics, leadership and management. Jede also holds a Masters Degree in Public Policy and Economic Development from KDI School of Public Policy and Management, Seoul, South Korea.

YWI seeks to mentor and inspire young women and girls to become visionary leaders and businesswomen, to help young women and girls discover their hidden potential and link them to existing opportunities, and to support young women and girls to pass on the knowledge they’ve acquired, inspire others and leave a legacy for the next generation. YWI will provide young women mentors for Uwicyeza students to support them in their personal and professional development.
