The Story

What began as a fun run for girls in a small village of Rwanda has developed into a global run for girls' empowerment around the world!

 

The KOMERA GLOBAL RUN is a global movement of people around the world coming together to MOVE in support of girls' education + empowerment!

 

You can open the door of opportunity by sending a young woman to boarding school for only $500, or $1,200 for a year in university! We believe that every girl around the world has the right to go to school and believe that she can RUN THE WORLD!

 

We believe girls all around the world should have the opportunity to learn and realize their own personal potential. Komera empowers young women in Rwanda by using sport as a tool to teach her she can #RunTheWorld!

 

RUN WITH US:

Lets raise our voices and RUN for every girl who doesn’t have that chance.

 

How it works:

  • You Co-Captain a team with a Komera Scholar, join a friend's team, or simply fundraise on your own! We'll connect you up with a Komera scholar if you email lauren@komera.org!
  • You invite friends and family to help you raise funds for the Komera scholars to RUN THE WORLD! We ask teams to set a goal of $750- the cost of tution and materials for a scholar for a year!
  • We connect you and your Komera co-captain via Skype and email so you can get to know each other! 
  • You sign up to run in your local Komera Global Run- Boston, BrooklynSan Francisco (or your own fun run!) and run your heart out.
  • Your Komera Co-Captain runs her heart out for you on June 16th in Rwanda!
