And then it was all about knitting! AVEGA is a recipient of 40 machines and our formal meeting was followed by a training session with some of the AVEGA knitters. Cari and Geoffrey once again led a group of eager knitters through training. Cari introduced Kate and shared the potential for their product to be distributed in the U.S. if the group can develop products similar to the samples Kate brought with her. Bpeace is having these samples developed so we can introduce the U.S. retail market to Rwandan knitting cooperatives and help their businesses expand

Then is was time for some quick creativity as Kate and Cari designed a new scarf incorporating the sun which shines on its flag and over Rwanda’s beautiful green hills. We hope this “Rwandan Hope Scarf” can be a significant fundraiser this fall season.

Wonderful creativity ladies!! I have a couple of mundane business issues that i am dealing with today and your actions are inspiring me to think a little differently

"Here comes the sun!" I imagine this will be a much loved item. Knit one, purl two. Love to all, Golde.
What a beautiful gesture to design a scarf out of the Rwandan flag....that is very symbolic and is a strong symbol of hope.

This is the new Rwandan flag that was created after the genocide and we thank you for this heartfelt gesture. Keep up the good work!
