The world doesn’t have to be what it is; let's change the story.
On November 29th, people all over the world will come together and harness the power of human connection. GIFTS Rwanda is participating in Giving Tuesday 2022, and we have an exciting opportunity for you!
Partner with us as we equip single mothers in Rwanda for a sustainable career in sewing!
Being a single mother in Rwanda is especially difficult as job opportunities are few and many stigmas remain. But with your help, we can offer the education, supplies, and location needed for the village of Rugarika. Our goal is to build a safe and secure building as well as provide sewing machines, supplies, and training. The ripple effects of this moment will be generational.
To help meet this goal, we are kicking off the launch of our coffee, Rwanda Nyakarenzo, in partnership with Top of the Lake Coffee. Everyone who donates $100 or more HERE will get a FREE bag of our new coffee! Proceeds of the coffee purchases go toward GIFTS Rwanda’s sewing project, as well as directly to the employees in Rwanda working on the farms, harvesting and washing the coffee beans. We are partnering with Nyakarenzo Coffee Washing Station/Rwacof (approximately 70% of their employees are women), whose focus is on improving the financial situation of the local farmers.
Oh, and did I mention we have a goal of raising $30k AND we have a $10k MATCH to help us get there?!?!
Starting NOW through Giving Tuesday (November 29th) get your donation MATCHED up to $10k! Give $100 or more and you will be one of the first to receive our brand new coffee, Rwanda Nyakarenzo. Keep it for yourself or use as a beautiful holiday gift for the coffee lover in your life. This is ONLY for this campaign so donate now to take part.
The women and girls of Rwanda are brilliant, compassionate, resilient, and brave. This Giving Tuesday, join GIFTS Rwanda in helping create gender-equitable job and leadership opportunities. Your donation dollars have never reached so far.
This opportunity will change the lives of these young mothers and only lasts until November 29th.
Are you in?
At this time of year, we could all use a reminder of the good in the world. You’ve been part of some incredible work this year, including giving 16 single new moms the skills to begin their own sewing business when they were looking at a future with very little options open to them.
We want to celebrate the good you’ve made possible already and invite you to participate in a new opportunity to make an even larger impact this giving season.
More details are coming soon!

As we move through election day in the US, we want to offer you an opportunity to vote for independence and joy for the wonderful women of Rugarika, Rwanda and their precious children.
Have you seen our New Mothers Sewing Co-Op graduates?
As part of their graduation the ladies requested uniforms with GIFTS Rwanda across them. The uniforms create a sense of belonging and teamwork for those who have gone through so much. They are single moms who have very little options open to them in the culture they are in and they have bonded and encouraged each other greatly. Your vote of confidence in this project is something they are very grateful for, and they are proud to show everyone in their community the new skills they have acquired. You can see in these pictures the joy and confidence gained by these beautiful women. We are so happy for each of them and the bright futures they hold!
Every dollar you give is a vote for the women of Rugarika, Rwanda.
Coming soon we will have an incredible opportunity to help these and many more new moms in Rugarika.
I am so excited to share how you will have a chance to make an enormous impact!!
