Our Vision

A Rwandan society where women and girls have healthy and dignified lives, are meaningfully engaged in communities and economically empowered.

Our Values

We place rights holders’ first. We are driven with the spirit of improving the lives of women and girls with multiple and intersecting vulnerabilities.

We strongly believe everyone deserves dignity and respect as a valuable member of the society.

At individual level and through team work, we thrive for transparency and full responsibility for everyone’s actions.

We believe in and expect all our stakeholders to be loyal, trustworthy and uphold confidentiality.

Our Story

IMPA-NU-RO is a Kinyarwanda word that translates as “good advice”.
Impanuro Girls’ Initiative (IGI) was founded by Marie Ange Raissa Uwamungu in 2017, in Kigali, Rwanda. The founder of the organisation was determined to address the teenage pregnancy issues as a result of poor or no access to Sexual Reproductive Health (SRH) information and services among others.

Inspired and committed to transforming the lives of vulnerable young girls in her own community, she was also joined by other young women, thus the foundation of Impanuro Girls’ Initiative (IGI).

Our Team

Impanuro Girls Initiative is made up of a team of dedicated individuals. We come from different backgrounds but we share the same belief, a belief that every girl and woman deserves to prosper in life and live with dignity.
