Donation: Month of Training
Before working with Indego Africa, 93% of its partner women earned income below $1 per day. This amount often fed and housed an entire family, including an average of five dependents (often orphans from other families). Many of the women are without a husband, cope with HIV/AIDS, suffer from psychological trauma, and otherwise lack any other opportunity to earn a livable income.
MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Our artisan partners have incredible energy, creativity, ambition and intelligence . . . but few opportunities. By donating to Indego Africa, you can deliver those opportunities to them right now. And you are doing more than simple giving; you are making an investment in the long-term future of these Rwandan women, their families, and their communities. With our experience and emphasis on transparency, we ensure your donation directly improves the lives of women. And our approach works . . . In one short year, Indego Africa has halved the number of women in its cooperatives living on less than $0.50 per day.

INVEST IN TRAINING AND INCREDIBLE ORPHANS
Indego Africa launched a ground-breaking partnership in July 2008 with Orphans of Rwanda International (ORI), a non-profit that funds university scholarships for high-achieving orphans in Rwanda. ORI scholars conduct weekly training sessions for our artisan partners in management, entrepreneurship, computer usage, and literacy. This collaboration benefits all parties involved, providing high-potential students with work experience that they cannot often find locally, delighting the women, and allowing Indego Africa to run its training programs frugally yet efficiently. By making a tax-deductible donation in the amount of $50, you’re supporting the ORI students’ training expenses for one month and helping our partners obtain new income-generating skills that will help them over the long-term.
