I'm missing Kigali, big time. Yesterday, Alissa & I had a long meeting over skype, going over some final notes as we get ready to launch the site. I can't wait to share the project with you guys, and give you a taste of what Heaven is.
I was invited by Azizi Life to tag along on an Experience. These women are strong and so damn beautiful. It was an honor to spend time in their community, learning about their daily responsibilities and discussing our many cultural differences. And of course the many similarities.
Watching the co-op's eldest member lovingly quarrel with one of the men about the pros and cons of divorce (which simply does not exist in this rural community) was hilarious. Absolutely no translation needed.
The women specialize in weaving sisal to make beautiful earrings and bracelets. Their pieces are available through Azizi Life, a non-profit organization that connects many artisans and co-ops to the global market.
