Our all-girls secondary boarding school, the Gashora Girls Academy of Science and Technology, was founded to enable Rwanda’s young women to reach their full potential, becoming the future scientists, entrepreneurs, advocates, and thought leaders that the world needs. These young women will bring insights and solutions to the biggest global challenges we face.
The Gashora Girls are the most engaged and intellectually curious young women in Rwanda, and we’re fostering a culture that encourages them to boldly seek answers to some of the world’s biggest challenges and spark positive change in their communities. Their brilliant minds will lead Rwanda (and the world!) into a brighter, more equitable future.
The students at Gashora Girls Academy have diverse backgrounds, traditions, and beliefs. They represent every geographic region of Rwanda and every socioeconomic status. The community values respect for all experiences and perspectives. Because of this, they are better equipped to lead with empathy, understanding, and compassion. We’re creating a generation of leaders who not only know how to think critically but also have a rich appreciation for the ongoing success of their country.
