Komera is the cooperative that makes all of the bags, baskets, wood carvings, etc. that RSF sells at its December fundraiser. (Mark your calendars for Dec 6 this year at the Depot Station, 203 SE Depot Ave., Gainesville, FL, 32601.) Thanks to your donations, there are now 34 members at Komera who are striving to attain financial independence by making high quality items targeted initially to local markets in Gisenyi but potentially to worldwide markets as well. This video captures the atmosphere inside the happy supportive community that is Komera (meaning “strong” in kinyarwanda) .
