The organization was set up by professional women from Rwanda and other nationalities. It was motivated by the findings from the analysis of the situation of women in rural areas, carried out by women involved in rural development. The challenges faced by Rwandan women identified through this analysis have been the subject of advocacy, lobbying, mobilization of policy makers, different authorities, and the community in general to promote change in terms of gender integration at all levels and more in-depth analysis by other development partners in favor of Rwandan women especially rural women. Subsequently, gender sensitive policies and programs begun to emerge. Following their analysis, the members of the Réseau des Femmes facilitated creation of other organizations dealing with specific themes such as Duterimbere for promoting economic empowerment, Haguruka for promoting legal rights and other similar organizations, which got together to establish an umbrella organisation bringing together 13 organisations, in 1993, “Profemmes / Twese Hamwe”.
