All Across Africa works with rural producer groups and business partners in Rwanda, providing them with resources including education, training, materials, and finance programs. Artisans weave beautiful baskets and bowls from locally sourced materials including sisal and sweet grass. Rwandan women have been passing the skill of basket weaving from generation to generation for centuries.

These baskets can function as tools used by Rwandans as well as ornaments, heirlooms, art, gifts, symbols of culture, pieces of tradition, and embodiments of friendship. In several ways, these baskets are closely connected to Rwanda’s identity and they serve as a source of pride and livelihood for thousands of people.
