Meet Grace and the Other Women

Member since: February 2017

Hi, I am Grace and I am a member of the women center in Kigali. Weaving is something that was thaught to us from our mothers and grandmothers and here at the center we are improving our skills. With the income of the basket weaving we are able to feed our family and make sure our children can go to school. We are a Rwandan NGO, founded by 18 women living in Nyamirambo, Kigali. With this tour we support all our activities and you directly create an impact for the women in our community.
