Azizi Life

Tucked into a number of communities outside of Kigali, Rwanda, a little organization called Azizi Life (Azizi) works to promote economic security, spiritual growth and  community development. Azizi’s main purpose is “to participate in local initiatives for the development of Rwandan communities working towards physical and spiritual wholeness for all.” Azizi accomplishes this purpose by partnering with local artisans and providing them with any necessary training to improve their craft and a platform upon which they can sell their finished creations. On the Azizi website, anyone interested in supporting the artisans can buy anything from handwoven baskets and bowls, to handmade jewelry and purpose. Click here to visit the online store.
