Help Frida and other Rwandan young women break the cycle of poverty by supporting their education and promoting gender equality.
In Rwanda, Komera means "be strong, have courage". Komera builds self-confident young women through education, community, and sport. Mikey and I have been running with Komera since 2012. We're committed to getting involved each year when we can because we see how Komera is making a real difference, one young woman at a time. We, together with our co-captain the beautiful Frida, a Komera Scholar in Rwanda, want to help Komera continue to change the world by giving young women the opportunity to get educated and strengthen themselves and consequently strengthen their communities.
We are so proud to play even a small part in supporting the programs that educate and empower these young women. To do our part, we will be running a 5k this Sunday June 12th, in Prospect Park in Brooklyn, NY. Frida will be running along with us in Rwanda! We are a team--won't you join us? No donation is too small, every penny counts. Read on below to learn a bit more about Frida, a great example of the amazing women you will be helping.
Thank you so much for your support!
