Cooperative Effort

The Ubuntu Women’s Sewing Cooperative started in Boneza, Rwanda, in the fall of 2017. All new to the sewing skill, these women gather to learn, grow, and share community. Many women in this group were living on $1 a day, but now they find success in selling their beautiful handmade products. All of their products are made from local, traditional Rwandan fabric.

This local opportunity is changing lives and providing hope to over 30 families in Rwanda.

The name “Ubuntu” comes from the Kinya-Rwandan word for “Grace.”
