Charity: The Komera Project
The Komera Project is one of the Curves for Change benefactors. The project is a not-for-profit organization that advances secondary education in Rwanda by providing both mentorship and financial support to girls for whom secondary education is otherwise not possible. It is founded on the understanding that as girls continue their education, they improve their earning potential, their health and their sense of self-worth thereby enabling them to break the bonds of poverty.
The Komera Project also engages students in the US. Students can participate in achieving the Komera mission through their Run to Rwanda curriculum, an interactive program of educational materials and sponsored runs/walks.
“You will never break the cycle of poverty or disease without educating girls. It won’t happen” -Paul Farmer, Founder, Partners in Health
