Gender Program


Kigali, Rwanda

Rwanda has long established itself a key coffee origin for the specialty market. Despite successfully building long-lasting value chains, the coffee sector has come to re-evaluate the importance of building resilient, gender balanced value chains. In an effort to support, country wide initiatives to promote gender balance and women’s empowerment, Vuna has agreed to collaborate with Sustainable Harvest Rwanda on an important multi-phase gender development program. Vuna’s specific role is to develop the content for a number of specific gender focused initiatives, including Best Agricultural Practices, Organizational Management, Financial Literacy and Gender Equity and Balance in coffee value chains.
