In January 2016 Engalynx was asked by theExecutive Secretary of Rwamagana District to provide training for some of the poorest women in the Eastern Region. They lived in the the Munyiginya Sector which borders the Mwurire Sector, where we have built the Maternity Unit.
The training began in August finishing in March 2017. 30 students enrolled and 29 completed the training. Engalynx provided the trainer, sewing machines, materials, premises etc.
The women have now formed a co-operative which has been approved by the Government and are now exhibitiong and selling their goods.

Following the completion and successful implementation of the Maternity Unit, our latest project is to build the rest of the Health Centre in Ntunga, Eastern Rwanda. This is a very ambitious project for Engalynx, we need to raise in the region of £500,000. However, knowing what a difference the maternity unit has made to the population and having seen the figures for the births increasing month by month the Trustees and I have decided that we shall go ahead and do our utmost to raise the necessary funding for this building.
The same priorities for the reasons to build the Centre are as applied in the beginning to the Maternity Unit.
