Sisters Joy Ndunguste and Janet Nkubana started Gahaya Links after the Rwandan Genocide in 1994. It is a weaving training facility and marketplace borne out of the need to empower women and girls who were left to become providers for their families after the Genocide. However, the company became the first Rwandan handicraft export company to be recognized by the Africa Growth and Opportunity Act, which aided its debut into the US market.
Gahaya links partnered with Fairwinds Training INC. AND Macy to become the leading exporter of Rwanda’s unique baskets through its Path to Peace program. The company continues to empower women (and men) by teaching them the weaving skill while contributing to the socio-economic sector of Rwanda.
The values driving Gahaya links are dominated by teamwork and commitment to quality as well as customer service and accountability. Interested customers and investors can track their progress via their Facebook and Twitter pages.
This is excellent news for the indigenes of Rwanda as Gahaya Links pays special attention to members of the rural community by helping to empower them as well as contributing to the socio-economic growth of the nation.
