Last Day in Rwanda: Monday, July 14

On our last day in Kigali, Rwanda we had the fortunate opportunity to visit the Sisters of Rwanda.  We received a tour of the Treasure Center and enjoyed meeting the women who make the beautiful handmade Keza necklaces.  A few of us even tried our hands at rolling the strips of discarded paper and magazines into beads.

To discover all about the Sisters of Rwanda, please go to their site HERE.  Also, interestingly enough, THIS is an article in today's Nashville City Paper regarding the connection SOR has to Nashville and how this worthy nonprofit group is coming along.  Other good articles to note are at World To The Wise and For The Record.

We were blessed to be in their presence and gain an insiders look at this amazing team in action.  We encourage you to purchase some Keza beads, that not only make a wonderful gift, but helps these women and their children out of poverty and into hope.  Thanks to Ilea Dorsey and the entire group for allowing us to visit.  Here are some of the photographs from the day spent with the Sisters:






Amy purchased Keza beads in Nashville two weeks before our trip and got to meet the woman at SOR that made Amy's necklace -
