A Partnership in Caring Society volunteer Lynn MacDonald visited Association Tubahumurize. It is a grassroots organization that empowers female victims of violence and marginalization through trauma counselling, skills coaching and training. Over the last ten years they have gathered experiences that prove that the women and girls that receive training at Tubahumurize are able to rebuild psychologically, socially and economically.
Today, 120 girls and young women have graduated from their sewing, embroidery and quilting school. They have taken charge of their lives and the lives of their families.
A Partnership in Caring Society (APICS) is proud to support the work of this grassroots organization by purchasing their products, bringing them back to Nova Scotia to sell with profit. This profit then returns to Rwanda to help support our projects. It is a win/win situation.
