Personal Wellness Development
Personal Wellness Development aims to guide and support all RNI youth to pursue and achieve their goals.
Years before creating Rungano-Ndota, we grew up in the same context as RNI youth today.
So we understand their challenges. Mentorship helped us discover our strengths and potential!
To understand their dreams, we take time to listen
to each and every youth.
To love and care about themselves and others, youth with unique experiences are offered a space to share their experiences and ideas.
To better understand their personal contexts,
we visit each youth at home.
When challenges develop for our youth,
they know they can turn to RNI for support
Mentoring helps RNI youth make good choices for personal
wellness and livelihood options.
A Summary of Personal Wellness Development
““I came to trust Rungano Ndota, and I was grateful the program helped me get knowledge about reproductive health and protecting myself from unwanted pregnancies.
I have also worked on my confidence and public speaking skills, so now I am able to pass on the knowledge to
my friends as a mentor for them too!”
– Rosine Niyonsenga, RNI Youth
“Before joining Rungano-Ndota, I was not sociable
because I thought that the problems I had were exclusively mine, so no one could ever understand me. But when I
joined, I heard different stories from my fellow youth that I could easily relate to. I felt a sense of community and Camarade encouraged me to start opening up. I found
friends and family who helped me in Rungano-Ndota, and now I’m also able to help others.”
– Isiaac Niyonkuru, RNI Youth
