Since completing our pilot project in collaboration with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in December 2016, Indego continues to provide vocational weaving skills and business training to a group of 50 women refugees from Burundi currently living at the Mahama Refugee Camp in Rwanda. You can read more about our refugee program and the incredible women we work with here.
The photography to be displayed is a creative project developed by Indego Africa that aims to provide visibility and perspective to the lives of these remarkable women. These photographs showcase the successes we've seen throughout our partnership and present a positive, creative, and empowering outlook for the future.
Now, more than ever, we believe it is necessary to come together to support refugee communities and ensure equal opportunities for women and artisans around the world. We hope you will join us!
