I have been involved with Indego Africa since its inception in September 2006. The great success of Indego Africa rests upon an innovative social enterprise model that enables Rwandan women -- many of whom are genocide widows -- to lift themselves out of poverty. Indego Africa provides these women with access to the global marketplace to sell their handicrafts, and 100% of profits are reinvested for the benefit of the women through skills training and other valuable programs. Indego Africa's success is due not only to its presence on the ground in Rwanda and the respect it receives there, but also because of the vast support network that has grown organically throughout the United States in the form of various regional boards. And of course, none of this would be possible without the determination, focus, and enthusiasm of the executive management team and its emphasis on transparency.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
every Indego Africa event I have attended over the past 3+ years.
