Who We Are

Resonate is a dynamic and growing social enterprise that needs a Country Director who can lead our core program and prepare u

s for expansion within Rwanda and throughout East Africa. Resonate unlocks leadership potential of women and girls in East Africa. Our workshops allow women and girls to develop the self-confidence and leadership to turn skills and opportunities into action. For a woman, self-confidence can be the difference between learning a craft and becoming a social entrepreneur, the difference between having an idea about how to fix a problem and rallying others to implement community-based solutions.

Our clients are impact groups focused on women’s skill building and education. Through a B2B model we incorporate our workshops into their programs in order to improve our client outcomes, and drive more impact to the women and girls we both serve. This role requires leadership of our team in Rwanda, and external relationship building with clients, funders, and government.
