Sandals workshop

Our inaugural project involved teaching mothers to craft sandals from banana leaves. Through engaging workshops, we successfully created approximately 600  pairs every month. Thanks to the generous support of Mantis Collection through their Hotels ,Mantis Kivu Marina Bay in Rusizi, Mantis Akagera game lodge, Mantis Epic hotel & suites Nyagatare, kivu Queen Uburanga Rusizi, these locally-made sandals are being used in hotel rooms, generating a big income for the community.
