About us

ALPHA ELIMU is a based women-led organization, operating in Rwamwanja refugee Settlement founded in 2018 with a district certificate in Kamwenge No 1223/1. After some time in the Rwamwanja refugee settlement, there was a series of predominantly gender-based violence among the refugees and the host community; several organizations stood up and intervened to prevent and combat this violence. But little change has been observed; the victims were confused about which leg they were to dance on. During this time, the group of women led by Chantal MUHONGAYIRE (founder) and 2 co-founders (ASINA CHRISTINE, FRANCINE SIKITU) had a breathtaking experience and with the whole settlement interacting and engaging with the communities of refugees, refugee leaders, UNHCR officials, Prime Minister's Office staff, implementing agencies and partners. During all these engagements, the main factor was the ignorance of the refugee women and girls in the camp, “there was a lack of knowledge about reproductive health and parenting styles. In this regard, ALPHA ELIMU started its operation in Base-Camp II, where it began with offering Door to Door counseling and providing educative messages through drama and cultural Dance. Through the sensitization session, ALPHA ELIMU came to realize that only the victims are the ones to stand and solve these cases. Among the causes of that gender-based violence perpetrated towards women was the fact of not being educated which is seen as a serious handicap in the community. ALPHA ELIMU is implementing activities in Community based-psychosocial support (CBPS), GBV: Gender-Based Violence, Innovative reproductive health education, Hygiene, Adult literacy program and sanitation skilling for youths, Peacebuilding, women protection, environment protection, and conflict management
