I was very privledged to spend the day with a group of artisans in Rwanda, and get an insight into their day to day lives.
These women are neighbours and weavers. The majority of the crafting work is done by each member in her home. But every Monday and Friday afternoon, they gather to work together, practicing their skills and, most importantly, encouraging, teaching and coaching one another. Each week the members make a small contribution to the group, which is used to benefit the members.
