welcome to acts of gratitude

....for Social Entrepreneurs

who we are

Acts Of Gratitude (AOG) is a Rwanda-based  Social enterprise co-founded by 13 young social entrepreneurs in 2011. AOG is registered with the Rwanda Governance Board (RGB) as a National Non-governmental Organization (NGO) since 2014. Starting in 2015, AOG decided to focus its programs on social enterprise  development in Rwanda. That focus enables AOG to tackle youth unemployment and contribute to achieving other SDGs by solving key social challenges in local communities. Another big emphasis is put on women empowerment to make them real drivers of positive change.
