La Viva Rwanda

A fair trade store specialized in selling hand made items from Rwanda, Middle East, and Mexico. We support small cooperatives comprised mostly of women and children. Most of the items are made with natural materials such as banana tree bark, natural gems, and recycled materials. All proceeds go back to Rwanda to pay for school tuition, books, uniforms and boarding cost of low income students. La Viva Rwanda also sponsors free mental health services for immigrants living in the Dayton area. Learn more about them here https://www.facebook.com/VivaRwandaDayton/
