Breaking the Cycle of Poverty with Momentum

Breaking the Cycle of Poverty with Momentum

For the past six years, Swissline has supported Swiss non-profit organization Momentum and their amazing work of breaking the cycle of poverty. The work of Momentum is dedicated to female empowerment, education, and gender equality in Rwanda. Join us in supporting the amazing work these young women are doing in Africa.


Swissline proudly stands alongside Momentum Org., a Swiss nonprofit organization in its mission to promote equality and social justice. For years, we've been privileged to support Momentum's vocational training project, empowering young girls in Kinigi who have had to leave school due to pregnancy.

Swissline's contributions have helped establish and develop a sewing center, providing essential support such as medical insurance, and offering necessities to these young mothers. Today, we celebrate the success of over 171 graduates who have become professional sewers, thanks to Momentum's local partner, Muhisimbi Voice of Youth in Conservation.

Meet TURAMYUMUKIZA Alphonsin, 24 years old.

After getting  pregnant when she was 17 years old, she had to stop going to school while she was in secondary school She felt hopeless and without a future for herself and her son.

Joining UBUZIMA (the sewing center) has changed her life. Meeting with other girls who shared the same story made her stronger; Moreover, learning sewing skills while it was her hobby makes her happy. With the support of Muhimsimbi and Momentum, she has been able to provide uniforms and schools material for her son. The project helped her to be trusted again in her community. 

She became one of the team leaders of the sewing center UBUZIMA. She still has dreams such as going to University and opening her own shop to sell what the sewing center is making.


Every year, Swissline offers a special set handmade by the women of the Ubuzima sewing center in Rwanda as a gift with an online purchase. We are proud to share their work!

Created in collaboration between Swissline and Momentum Foundation, each pouch represents the empowerment of women and breaking the cycle of poverty for a better future.
