In Kigali, Rwanda, a cooperative of 29 women—all of whom came from refugee camps and are HIV positive—now have a sustainable income.
The cooperative is called Ejo Hazaza, which means “Tomorrow.” This alludes to the artisans’ hope for a better future. Janet Ntakirutimana, pictured here, is one of the women who has benefited from working with Ejo Hazaza. Previously a sustenance farmer, Janet is now a successful businesswoman.
Ejo Hazaza works with Indego Africa—Jesus’ Economy’s partner in Rwanda—to develop products for the U.S. market. Prior to Indego Africa’s work with the women of Ejo Hazaza, many of them were living on less than $1/day, but now they’re making a sustainable income.
Indego Africa is working with women in Rwanda to develop products that people all over the world want to own. Many of the products developed by Indego Africa have been recognized on the international stage for how fashionable they are—and this recognition has often resulted in partnerships with major U.S. fashion brands.
The story behind the Beaded Wrap Bracelet is one of empowerment. And the product itself is incredible.
Each Jesus’ Economy product has a 90-day, no questions asked return policy. So if you’re on the fence about buying something from us—give it a try. You have the opportunity to not only empower women in Rwanda through your purchase, but you can also help others around the world. We reinvest all profit into life transformation and continuing our efforts.
