Resonate unlocks leadership potential of women and girls in East Africa.

Our vision is to create a world where women and girls are leaders in creating the changes they want to see in their lives and communities. We aim to do this by pioneering a new approach to global development, and changing the way that capacity building is delivered worldwide.

We partner with groups providing skills and education, and integrate our leadership and confidence-building workshops into their existing programming. Resonate’s workshops ensure that women and girls don't just have access to skills and resources, but they also have the self-confidence to turn opportunity into action.

 
 
  • Communication and confidence are absolutely critical to working on a production floor, and improve daily efficiency at on purpose suppliers. Through Resonate workshops conducted at Abahizi Rwanda, we’ve seen not only the individuals, but the organization grow in its capacity to be a global manufacturer.

  • The discovery that we all have our leadership stories is important to my work as I strive to help women recognize that they have the power within to transform their lives and influence change for the better in other spaces.
    — Annette Mukiga, Director of Programs, Rwanda Women’s Network
  • I definitely recommend other organizations to work with resonate… to unlock potential and to increase the impact of the development programs in the community.
    — Antoinette Uwimana, Country Director, Women for Women Rwanda
  • Women’s hard skills and the education that they have only takes them 75% of the way. I feel like Resonate is that critical 25% top-up. What Resonate does is it bridges that gap. It takes someone who has the hard skills they need in order to succeed… but are held back because they don’t have the self-confidence that they need.
    — Rebecca Calder, Technical Director, SPRING Accelerator for Girls
  • We had a fantastic experience working with Resonate, who presented a three-part webinar series to the women entrepreneurs we work with. The entrepreneurs attended the webinars from a wide variety of countries, from El Salvador to the Philippines, and many shared how useful they had found the experience.

After Resonate’s training, I started believing that who I am, what I do, and what I think are important – and that I can have a say in my community. Today, I am a leader in my community and it feels wonderful to participate in the wellbeing of my people.
