The Women’s Opportunity Centre in Rwanda by Sharon Davis Design is an icon to which foreign aid can attach

Research output: Contribution to Newspaper/Magazine/BulletinArticle

Abstract

Rwanda is commonly regarded as the model for a developing country in Africa and its success is both a blessing and a curse. As a Dutch researcher also staying at the accommodation at the Women’s Opportunity Centre told me, ‘really, all Rwanda has is genocide and gorillas, and apparently it’s better and cheaper to see the gorillas in Uganda’.

It is both predictable and passé to talk about genocide in Rwanda, but if you are talking about the important and effective work of the non-profit Women for Women who funded and run the centre, it is difficult not to.
