ABOUT OUR ARTISAN PARTNER
Irene Mujawezu is 50 years old, she is married and is the mother of 4 children including two children that the couple is raising since the end of the genocide.
About 10 years ago, she decided to create her own cooperative to help the women of her village and the surrounding area.
Today, Korebu employs 200 people, the majority of whom are women who weave baskets made of sisal, banana leaves and other reeds. Her cooperative is part of a larger collective that employs several hundred people in the Gitara region.
The latter allows these Rwandans to pay for medical care, to feed themselves properly and to send their children to school.
