ABOUT THE ARTISANS
The 17 women of Kundagaseke “Basket Lovers” Association have dedicated themselves to getting out of poverty: rising above the conditions they used to live in. In addition to farming, the artisans spend their days weaving to make enough money to support themselves and their families. The members of Kundagaseke use their weaving time to discuss unity, culture, and reconciliation.
The women of Kundagaseke are seeing their hard work pay off. They have been able to cover their basic necessities and several have been able to purchase cell phones and invest in land and domestic animals as well.
Our purpose is to fight against poverty and provide for ourselves.
