Visit to Women to Women, RIEPA

Cari, Sabra, Geofrey visited with Kabera Bera at Women for Women, one of the knitting machine recipient groups that is involved in producing crafts. They are excited about starting knitting training.

Next, a meeting with Pierre Claver Uwimana, Deputy Director General for Export Promotion for RIEPA (Rwanda Investment and Export Promotion Agency). Rwanda continues to focus on coffee, ICT and leather. RIEPA recently built Artisan Centers, where craftspeople and craft cooperatives can access business and technical skills training; Rwanda Knits cooperatives will be able to take advantage of it. Sabra updated Pierre on the plans and objectives of Bpeace. He appeared to be very excited and wants to meet further.
Way to go, Sabra! Way to go Rwanda Knits! Way to go Bpeace! It's amazing to see the results when people who are on the same page get together. Keep up the great work you are doing. Love, Golde.
Oops, I forgot Women to Women. Way to go Women to Women. Love, Golde.
