Our History

Wibena Impact envisions a world in which all people can achieve their potential life objectives. It is a world with greater prosperity and social justice geared towards empowered generations for a better result. It is a world that embraces hope and kindness. It is with these principles that the organization was founded with the aim of addressing challenges faced by women and youth such as poverty, early teenage pregnancy, drug abuse and lack of technical-know at large in the society.

The main focus has been on societal empowerment and digital transformation promoting social progress and better standards of life for sustainable livelihood.

This is done through socio-economic growth by provision of basic quality education for sustainable development, capacity building and empowerment programs, research and development for the most vulnerable groups.

These are the groups who are mostly at the risk of poverty eradication across the globe. The need came out of research conducted by a team of experts. The empirical study revealed that Kigali has women and youth population that comes with high energy, innovation, creativity and talents. However, there is an acute shortage of empowerment and mentorship skills to bridge the gap.

The current provision of entrepreneurship supports to enable them gain relevant skills is entirely insufficient. As such, the majority of these vulnerable groups dwell in urban slum and rural areas.

It was after this study that the organization started working on bringing the most vulnerable women and youth together to build unique skills in entrepreneurship, leadership, Climate change and environmental conservation through capacity building.
