“WIRED” for Success: Advancing Women in Rwanda’s Energy Sector


The Power Africa-supported Women in Rwandan Energy (WIRE) initiative is working with the Rwandan Government and the private sector to bring 1,400 women into the fast-growing Rwandan energy sector. To support that goal, WIRE started an apprenticeship program in 2020 and is collaborating with Rwandan energy companies to provide on-the-job training to 115 female graduates from universities and technical colleges through a three-month apprentice program.
