All Across Africa – Women’s Cooperatives in Rwanda

Day1_Weavers_BuyDay-891

In February of this year, I joined All Across Africa in Rwanda, Uganda and Burundi for an amazing two-week journey through their women’s basket weaving cooperatives, as well as sewing schools designed for young adults. It was a beautiful experience showing the strength of a non-profit empowering locals by providing proper skill set training as well as a growing community of business development. The following are images throughout Rwanda. All products can be purchased by going to www.AllAcrossAfrica.org

Absolutely beautiful and artistic wares whose purchase goes to help people who are trying to support their families and enrich their communities, sounds like in addition to http://www.kiva.org/ I have a new favorite site for birthday gifts, Yule gifts, house-warming gifts, etc. What better way to help make the world a more stable and secure place for families and communities than to support these artisans?
