Let's Build A School in Rwanda - TOGETHER!

The children need our help.

The idea behind Weaving Hope is simple - fund new schools for Rwandan children with sales of beautiful handcrafted baskets made by local artisans in the small Rwandan village of Gitarama.  The proceeds go directly to building schools that will nourish the minds and bodies of children - weaving hope for their future.  

Join our virtual construction crew by purchasing a basket!  It only takes a few seconds to complete the transaction and create positive change that sustains itself year after year.  It’s a TEAM effort, and TOGETHER, we will build this school.  Let's make it happen!


This mission not only helps the children, it also provides opportunities for Rwandan women to earn a steady living and escape gender-based violence, inequality and discrimination.  These authentic, handmade African baskets come directly from a women’s cooperative in the village of Gitarama.  Your purchase helps them have a meaningful job to provide for their families, moving them from crisis and poverty to stability and economic self-sufficiency.

Weaving Hope is keeping it simple with four basket designs to choose from.  But, stay tuned for additional product announcements.

Construction of the school will start once we raise $30,000 (~1000 baskets sold).  We will keep everyone updated regarding progress by tracking basket sales right here on An announcement will be made when enough baskets have been sold, and the ground-breaking ceremony for the school's construction is scheduled. Be sure to visit our site regularly to check our goal completion status and for photo updates of the construction (once the school-building commences).
