Women's Initiative International works with impoverished women around the world to train in trade, build confidence and partner with them to sell artisan products.
In Women's Initiative International, we:
Partner with 15 women, helping to positively affect the lives of 45 children they care for
Give 100% of our sales back to our women for their personal income, material and business needs
Make quality items that take one week to make (small baskets) and others up to a month to finish (large planters)
Use all locally found bone, fibers and materials to make our products
Use vegetable dyes to hand dye our baskets
We are currently working with the beautiful women of the Nyabisindu area of Kigali, Rwanda. Hope has been ignited, along with the tools to build a brighter future for their families. Every purchase made helps to support these women's dreams and provide training for more women to join the trade program.
Thanks to the Women's Initiative my life has changed in every way. I can now afford to feed my children and I even opened a savings account!
