Akilah Institute for Women
  • The Akilah Institute for Women in Kigali, Rwanda is an institute of higher education for the future female leaders of Rwanda. Akilah opened in February 2010 with our inaugural class of 50 young women ages 18-25. All students received a full scholarship. During the Foundation Year, students take courses in Leadership & Ethics, Hospitality, Health & Nutrition, Public Speaking, Composition, and Computer
  • These young women are part of the generation that has suffered the consequences of the
  • 1994 genocide. They were children during the conflict, and many of them lost their parents and siblings. 1/3 of them are the heads of their households.86% of them have held leadership positions, including the President of an Orphans Association, the President of an Anti-AIDS club, the leader of a local neighborhood government, and a Sunday school teacher. The Akilah curriculum is a direct response to the needs of the private sector and emphasizes leadership development, practical training, and entrepreneurial skills. The first course at Akilah, the Leadership & Hospitality Studies Diploma, prepares students to work in the fastest growing sector of the Rwandan economy. The curriculum is being developed by an advisory council of experts and professors from Johnson and Wales University in Rhode Island, the Rwandan Private Sector Federation, the Rwanda Development Board, and the Rwandan Workforce Development Authority and Ministry of Education. Eight students have already obtained part-time jobs at hotels and restaurants in Kigali
