When an organisation has a name like the Bridge of Peace and Love Organisation (BPLO), you know it’s going to be something special. This Catalyst 2030 member organisation, based in Rwanda’s capital Kigali, may be only a year old but it has the passion and drive of youth and is determined to improve the situation of youth and women in Rwanda.

Run by Rachel Uwizerwa, BPLO focuses on partnerships and interventions that are sustainable and create strength and resourcefulness in the communities it serves.

One of its current projects is called Ngoboka. Started in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, this project helps vulnerable single mothers and pregnant women by providing them with food and hygiene requirements to meet their most immediate needs, as well as opening the door to a more sustainable future by teaching money management, problem solution, conflict resolution and critical thinking. The Ngoboka project is implemented with the support of the Digital Opportunity Trust and Red Cross Rwanda, in collaboration with the Huye District Authority.
