Haguruka is a Rwandan non-governmental organization registered under Rwandan law. Our organization works towards ensuring that women can claim their rights by empowering them and improving access to justice across the country. Haguruka was founded in 1991 and has since then been at the forefront of the fight for women’s and children’s rights. Haguruka means ‘stand up’ in Kinyarwanda-stand up for the rights of women and children.
For the past 30 years, Haguruka has worked tirelessly to address several challenges that women and children face in claiming their rights. This has been done through offering free legal aid, raining community awareness on GBV, capacitating stakeholders to give better service delivery and contributing to national law reforms, among others.
