Its beginning was simple — underneath a tree in the remote village of Gitarama. Its founders were two sisters — Joy Ndunguste and Janet Nkubana. What they taught were weaving and design to 20 local women. Today, what they achieved is much greater — a network of over 4,000 weavers across the country. "We believe that women's economic empowerment provides the foundation for achieving sustainable peace and development in Rwanda." Gahaya Links' goal is to improve the quality of life for women (and men) living in Rwanda's most challenging socio-economic environments.
