The Story Behind the Product: The Kundagaseke Cooperative

The 17 women of Kundagaseke “Basket Lovers” Association have dedicated themselves to getting out of poverty: rising above the conditions they used to live in. In addition to farming, the artisans spend their days weaving baskets, coasters, earrings, and bracelets to make enough money to support themselves and their families. They work patiently and diligently, a single product taking a full day to create. The members of Kundagaseke use their weaving time to discuss unity, culture, and reconciliation. The women of Kundagaseke are seeing their hard work pay off. They have been able to cover their basic necessities, like clothing, shoes, soap, and health insurance, and several have been able to purchase cell phones and invest in land and domestic animals as well.

"Our purpose is to fight against poverty and to develop ourselves." -The Kundagaseke Cooperative.
