About

Abari Collective Logo V2.PNG
 

The ABARI COLLECTIVE, a RICHARD’S RWANDA initiative has been investing in Rwandan girls' education since 2006, as the optimal way to create hope for a better future and nurture a community. Richard’s Rwanda has provided primary and secondary scholarships for over 85 girls.

The Abari Collective is an entrepreneurship jewelry project that enables dignified employment for Rwandan young women in the Bugesera District.

The Abari Collective empowers through four priority programs: Vocational training (Jewelry Making), ICT, Entrepreneurship, and Communications skills (English especially). A combination of facilitated learning sessions allows the women to learn business and English language skills to become creative entrepreneurs. The Abari Collective is an ethically sourced East African jewelry product that will break into new market segments and generate stable long term income for the artists with creative marketing campaigns.  

We will empower the Richard’s Rwanda young women to become business savvy, creative entrepreneurs and create role models for the younger girls in their community. We believe in the potential to transform Rwandan young women lives by enhancing their decision-making power and knowledge of business and entrepreneurship.

I am sending my respect and admiration for all girls around the world who are united in a common bond of optimism, education and a lifelong pursuit of achieving your fullest potential.
— Melinda Gates
