In support of our chosen charity, Rwanda Action, May Thomas visited with local crafts women in Rwanda. These ladies make craft and beads from paper. We have taken inspiration from them and this collection of jewellery has been made and designed to help support Rwanda Action. The Charity works in the remote south west region of Rwanda, in the districts of Rusizi and Nyamasheke, situated between the Nyungwe Forest and Lake Kivu. Here the people are not only struggling from the aftermath of the genocide in 1994, but they also face desperate poverty.
The sales of the Rwandan Bead Collection go towards helping provide training which will help young people transform their skills and talent into gainful employment or successful business enterprise.
