About this Artisan

Igira Impuhwe

As markets open up, the women of Igira Impuhwe [i-GI-ru im-HU-we] in Rwanda earn needed income from the sales of their eco-friendly, handwoven grass baskets. The artisan group lifts women, like Mukangenzi Laurance, out of desperate poverty. She now rents a home, has health insurance for her family, bought clothes for the children, and rents a garden to grow food. Each woman in the group is also presented with the life-changing offer of eternal life; Mukangenzi thanks God for changing her live. Igira Impuhwe means “God is compassionate” in Kinyarwanda.
