Amahoro means Peace

in Rwanda

The Beginning of Amahoro Bags

What’s Amahoro Bags

Amahoro Bags started in 2018. It is still in its infancy stages. It allows women of a local community in Kigali, Rwanda, to create their own income by making bags out of beads. The women come together and bead each bag with a unique intention and prayer. So not only are they empowering themselves through a potential income, but also through being in community, supporting each other as well as the women who are buying the bags. They are mostly single-mother’s who lack the money to send their children to school

How it all began

In 2013 I went to Rwanda as a volunteer for the first time. We were teaching Clay-therapy, Laughter Yoga and Massage to Psychology Students and local communities. When Christina approached me to support her son to go to school, I said yes. That’s how a beautiful friendship between Jonas and I started. In 2018 I went back to Rwanda and stayed with the family in their humble home. Paying the school fees and now university for one child is one thing, but to have an ongoing source of income for the whole family is another. When Christina showed me her beadwork (she gifted me a bag for my birthday!) I instantly thought that this could create a business not only for her but for the whole community!
