Investing In Education With Same Sky!

At Indego Africa, we believe deeply in the power of education to transform lives. That’s why we are so proud {& excited!} to partner with Same Sky to provide their artisans with entrepreneurial education through our business training program!

Same Sky is a trade-not-aid jewelry company that works to create employment opportunities for women in Rwanda {and the USA} who are struggling to lift themselves out of extreme poverty. Their vision is to give a second chance to all women living under the same sky {hence, the catchy name} and now they want to take their vision even further by providing their artisans with education. We couldn’t be more on board!

The inaugural semester of our Indego Africa x Same Sky business training program began on June 5th with 16 of Same Sky’s artisans in the class, all of whom are also members of Avega Agahoza (Association of Widows of the Genocide). Having faced profound hardships in their lives, these women are eager to further their business education, take their entrepreneurial skills to the next level, and create better opportunities for themselves, their families, and their communities. 

Through our business training program – taught by our very own Education Associate, Modeste Ngabonziza – these 16 students will learn lessons in: cooperative management, growing and expanding a business, budgeting, strategic planning, and leadership skills {the same business curriculum taught at our partner co-ops}. With this valuable knowledge, women will be able to become confident empowered businesswomen and lift themselves & their families out of poverty.

We are thrilled to partner with a company like Same Sky whose mission so much aligns with our own. Here’s to education & empowerment for all women in Rwanda & under the same sky!
