Uplifting Communities
Learn, Work, Develop- Rwanda

In lieu of traditional classroom education during quarantine, Learn Work Develop began offering classes in tailoring, hairdressing, mushroom farming and basket weaving. The shift to task-based training has empowered women specifically, providing hope and skills to uplift them spiritually and economically.

Mutoni, seen here, enrolled in the tailoring program offered through LWD. She is now earning more money to buy essentials such as soap for her and her family.
