A group of 30 women professionals have launched a network of motivational speakers to build confidence and entrepreneurship spirit among rural women.

Christine Gatsinzi, a Rwandan writer and one of the co-founders of Women of Worth (WOW), said they launched the network in order to connect women as worthy members of society.

“We aim at inspiring women through a series of talks and motivational speeches to appreciate their worth throughout the country,” she said.

At their recent meeting in Kigali, the women emphasised that inspiration and motivation are necessary for anyone to continue developing in life.

They also shared life experiences and challenges to inspire the novices who had attended the meeting.

Gatsinzi encouraged each woman to appreciate her virtues personally worth in dignity.

Deborah Kagwesage, a counsellor, pointed out that women are key in healing the wounds inflicted in the day to day lives of their spouses and children.

She stressed that this was every woman’s God given duty, so that the young generation could be raised within a legacy of wisdom.

“Today, we are confident that we are sowing a seed that is being planted on fertile ground and we know women’s presence will produce harvest,” she added.

Under the network’s initiative, women will meet every evening for 30 days to share ideas and life experiences in what is called ‘Women History Month’ which started at the beginning of March under the theme ‘Because I am a woman.’
