Impact - Artisan-Impact - Rwanda

Rwanda


In 2012, we learned about a tenacious group of women in Rwanda who wanted to earn an income for their families, but were struggling to find regular work. Many of the women were genocide survivors, and some had even taken in children who had been orphaned during the violence. Noonday customers sponsored these women and helped them graduate sewing school and start their own co-op. Today these strong women enjoy a reliable income, ongoing training and support, and the opportunity to own their own business.
