Together we can help rural women and children survive the challenges of HIV/AIDS and stigma, lack of education, cultural discrimination, poverty, poor health and sanitation.


The Rural Women Center for Education and Development (RuWCED)-Cameroon is a not-for-profit grassroots and nationally accredited organization that works to promote the health, education, livelihoods, human rights and development of rural women, girls, youths and children.

We work in collaboration with community based women groups, traditional councils, religious leaders, schools and health centers. We also explore and extend the relationship between resources, women's health and women's human rights in a bit to promote a humanistic vision of bodily integrity and well-being.

In most rural communities, there is no guarantee that a rural woman will escape maternal death in either of it forms. You can however, ensure some degree of guarantee with your services, gift or sponsorship.

Most of these young girls cannot afford for pads, and tend to use dirty cloths and leaves during their menses. This causes many to shy away from classes because their dresses always get stained.
