Most females in rural areas are at risk of never exploring their full potential and contributing to society significantly due to knowledge limitation and societal inequalities prevalent in rural and semi- urban communities. RUDERF is working towards solving this problem through the following innovative programs.

  • She Stands Leadership Academy (SSLA): A female leadership program designed to groom female leaders from disadvantaged background through a structured curriculum delivered in periodic workshops and mentorship support from high impact females from around the world. SSLA has a strong network that gives lifelong support and creates opportunities for young outstanding females to thrive and excel globally. SSLA also provides scholarships for international exchange programs for outstanding fellows.
  • She Stands Conference (STC): The she stands conference is an annual program of RUDERF that brings together young girls from across Africa to interact and learn from high impact women across sectors in society to be inspired and motivated for personal development and growth. STC also provides females with access to panel discussion sessions and online network of mentors.
  • She Stands Ambassadors Program (STAMP): STAMP selects 10 young females with high potential for social advocacy through a pitch competition and grooms them in a 1 week camp program to prepare them for life long advocacy in issues affecting women globally. At the end of their yearly ambassadorship reign the most outstanding and impact full fellow is awarded a cash price to support her work further and all beneficiaries are given lifelong mentorship support.


The Sister Project through its initiatives have impacted over 2000 females since 2016.
