TOGETHER, we are Building Another School in Rwanda!

The children need our help.

Our first school opened in Nkuzuzu in July 2019 thanks to the contributions and efforts of many people. We are now building a second school and have a whole new assortment of baskets available.

Our newest preschool will also serve as a training facility for East African college students! Learn more.

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 Muhanga. 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 make it happen... again!


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 Muhanga. 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 started by keeping it simple with four basket designs to choose from. But, we are excited to offer 12 new basket woven products here.

Exciting News! Construction of our second preschool and training center for East African college students is nearing completion and will be open by the end of the year. It is located in the rural community of Kabuga, just outside of Kigali. We will continue to keep everyone updated regarding progress for the school and future basket sales.
