According to the source, she will meet Ms. Jeannette Nyiramongi Kagame, First Lady of Rwanda, with whom she will discuss their social commitments. Committed to the fight against HIV, the First Lady of Rwanda is the founder and president of the Imbuto Foundation.
In May 2001, it is recalled that she hosted, in Kigali, the 1st African Summit of the First Ladies on Children and HIV / AIDS prevention. This summit led to the creation of the PACFA (Protection and Care of Families against HIV / AIDS or Protection and Care for Families against HIV / AIDS), an initiative that focuses on prevention for all family members that subsequently other subjects than the disease were included as projects.
Launching of the "Plus Fortes" movement
Last May, the First Lady of the DRC launched the "Plus Fortes" movement, first born of the " Denise NyakeruTshisekedi" Foundation which is articulated around four axes highlighting the education, the health and the entrepreneurship of the Congolese.
According to Denise NyakeruTshisekedi, her vision is to contribute to a dynamic Congolese society where women will be free, strong, valued and will bring progress and an innovative vision around the values of work, ethics, patience and perseverance. The first axis dedicated to education aims to encourage the training of girls in science (STEM) as well as new information technologies.
In health, the objectives focus on supporting women suffering from silent diseases such as cancer, obstetric fistula and sickle cell disease. With regard to gender-based on violence (GBV), the aim is to encourage changes in the behavioral patterns of men and boys to advocate for gender equality. Finally, the focus on empowerment aims to encourage and support women's entrepreneurship. The arrival of Félix Tshisekedi's wife in Rwanda comes a few days after her stay in Bukavu, where she visited the Panzi Hospital, which takes care of women victims of sexual rape.
