Gifted Hands center

Driven by the desire to work with less advantaged women in Rwanda, Gahaya Links, in 2007 established the ‘Gahaya Gifted Hands Innovation Centre” located in Kicukiro Kigali city. The center is the company's innovation component where women gather for regularly to learn skills. At the center, the women are equiped with weaving and innovating skills to enable them produce high quality intricate handcrafts that can compete favorably in international markets. As a result, this will certainly empower Rwandan women economically to fight poverty and improve the well being of their families. In running the Center, Gahaya links works closely with partner organizations, including among others; Government of Rwanda, USADF, Kind World Foundation, UNIFEM, Sager Family Foundation, Family health international, Africare, and the ministry of commerce through PPMER in identifying women from across the country for training.
