Celebrating Young Rwandan Achievers (2007 To-date)

Celebrating Young Rwandan Achievers (CYRWA) awards was established in December 2007, to honour outstanding young Rwandans who strive toward the highest levels of personal and professional accomplishments.

The award ceremony is held every two years in partnership with the Ministry of Youth. To-date, 48 individuals, organisations and enterprises awarded under Youth Connekt Champions and CYRWA Candidates are chosen through a public nomination process and the final selection is made by an Imbuto Foundation panel.

Those awarded have forged paths of leadership for all Rwandan youth to follow.

Through this project:
• 48 young women and men were awarded for their exceptional activities,
• The award ceremonies have been organised for 6 years.
