Impact of Covid-19 on
Women Workers in the
Horticulture Sector in Rwanda

Since 2017, Rwanda Women’s Network in partnership with Hivos under Women@Work Campaign (W@W) has been implementing the Women Leadership project in the horticulture sector in Rwanda. The project aims at improving the status of women (in horticulture) through strengthening women’s leadership capacity and promoting decent work for women.

No one would have imagined the effect that COVID-19 would have, in almost all sectors across the globe, including horticulture. It is
within this context that Hivos commissioned a rapid assessment with an aim to establish the impact of the virus amongst women in the horticulture sector, specifically in Gatsibo, Nyagatare and Rwamagana District, where RWN implemented the Women@Work Campaign initiative in Rwanda.

WOMEN COUNT Security Council Resolution 1325: Civil Society Monitoring Report 2012

Having emerged from the 1994 genocide and its devastating effects, Rwanda has since moved on as a progressive postconflict country with notable development initiatives that have played a leading role in eacebuilding and reconciliation. The country however remains stalked by threats of conflict by the rebel Democratic Liberation Forces of Rwanda (FDLR) composed of militia and elements of the former regime’s Forces Armee Rwaindais (ex-FAR) operating from eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Since the end of the genocide to date the FDLR continue to be a source of insecurity, not only in Rwanda, but in the Great Lakes Region of Africa as well.

Securing‑Women’s Land Rights

The International Land Coalition (ILC) is a global network with a diverse membership of 152 organisations, including civil society and international organisations, working towards a common vision of secure and equitable access to and control over land for women and men. Securing women’s land rights is a priority for ILC members, many of whom have engaged in the Coalition’s global initiative on this topic over the years.


As a Coalition, we emphasise the importance of sharing knowledge and experience both within and beyond our network. Peer-to-peer learning, such as the Learning Route described here, is valuable not only because it provides an opportunity to see the work of others up close, but also because of the group spirit that develops through travelling, analysing, asking questions, and learning together and from one another
