Priscilla Umutashya Ruzibuka, Ki-pepeo Kids Clothing

Date grant awarded: October 28, 2016

Many of the women and girls living in Kigali, Rwanda escaped the village with hopes of pursuing a decent city life. Since Rwanda has abolished the importation of secondhand clothes, Priscilla Umutashya Ruzibuka has created the Ki-pepeo Kids Clothing project to empower women with the knowledge and tools to take on textile employment opportunities. This project is inline with Rwanda’s Vision 2010, which is working to reduce poverty and transform the country into a knowledge-based middle-income place.
