Weavers of Hope – Meet Donata

Weavers of Hope – Meet Donata

The genocide of 1994, as a result of civil war between Hutu and Tutsi, left the country ravaged and over a million Rwandans lost their lives.

The women of Rwanda are striving for a better future for themselves and their children and weave their stories, hopes and aspirations into their baskets.

Donata is one of these ladies.

Donata is 36, she has 4 children, the fourth born after her husband got into debt and left her.  She also looks after another child whose mother is in prison on dubious charges.

Donata has never been to school but came to Kinamba project to the literacy classes.

Her work is beautiful.
