Kwigira is an ikinyarwanda word that is difficult to match in English. Imagine you are a parent who is helping their child learn to walk. At first you have to help them stand. After a while they can do that on their own. Then you start to help them walk, maybe at first you hold both their hands, after some time you can hold just one hand, until eventually you can let go completely and they take off. Somewhere down the road that child may even help someone else learn to walk. That is kwigira. It is being elevated or improving to the point of being able to stand on your own feet. It’s self-reliance, empowered, capable. And we believe it is the key to change that will ripple through generations!
