Frida Uwera

MEAL officer - Generation Gender

Frida is a highly proficient development practitioner with over 8 years of experience in designing and implementing evidence-based development programs, mostly in gender, SRHR, and youth (girls’ empowerment), and is currently pursuing her Master's in Project Management.

She began her career at Girl Effect Rwanda (GER) as one of the first ‘girl researchers’ cohorts. Over a period of 7 years working at GER, she expanded her skill set across research to program management and strategy, and she eventually became the lead in the strategy, monitoring, and evaluation of Ni Nyampinga activities. As Strategy Manager, she oversaw the design and implementation of several successful SBCC interventions with Girl Effect’s partners, such as UNICEF and GAVI, focusing primarily on health (ASRHR, hygiene, menstrual management, and HPV) and education and gender. Some of the interventions she led targeted specifically teen and young mothers.

After leaving Girl Effect in 2022, Frida worked on several research projects (both

nationally and internationally) as a consultant to deliver research and training about gender, youth, and girls’ empowerment. As a consultant, she has worked with Ravel Consultancy Ltd, on the delivery of an SBCC, training, research, and strategy for the Right to Play SHARE programme in Ghana, Mozambique, and Uganda, the One Acre Fund Fortified Whole Maize Flour Packaging project and the British Council Creative and Cultural Industries Mapping Project. Recently, with ResultsInHealth, she worked on the mid-term review of Rutgers’ The Generation Gender and of Wemos Make Way Programme.

Frida is passionate about evidence-based programming in the field of gender and youth, and she believes in gender transformative approaches as the way to promote gender equality.
