Where it's made

Where it's made

Africa has a history of tribal and colonial leadership, resulting in poverty, conflict and injustice.  Our friend and Advisor, Celestin Musekura, founded ALARM (African Leadership and Reconciliation Ministries) after his family was brutally attacked and many killed during the genocide. Celestin’s vision is to build servant leaders who are willing to lay aside personal and tribal interests to restore brokenness in churches, families, communities and nations. In addition to the tribal healing, women are given access to the economic ladder in order to provide for their families. Since they started weaving baskets in community, the women have woven love & understanding for one another that we pray brings hope & peace for future generations.
How it's made

How it's made

Our beautiful Rwandad Agaseke handcrafted baskets have been a part of the country’s culture for centuries. The baskets are woven from natural raw materials like sisal fibers, sweet grass, banana leaves and raffia which are then hand-dyed. Rwandan women, survivors of the 1994 genocide, are taught how to weave the baskets from their mothers and grandmothers, carrying on a tradition that has been passed down from one generation to another. A 12-inch basket takes at least 40 hours of labor to create. Proceeds from these items support women overcoming poverty and injustice in Rwanda.
