On a Thursday afternoon of 29th June, 2017 AVEGA Agahozo and Rwanda Development Board (RDB) visited widows of Cooperative Ineza, at their headquarters located in Gasabo District, Remera sector. These widows warmly welcomed both institutions, wearing mushanana and big bright smiles. They had properly set up the place with arranged chairs and wall decorations. The pieces of crafts that are handmade by them brightened up the place the most.
The Gasabo district executive welcomed each of the representatives and thanked them for their daily support to the widows. The RDB representative delivered a message from RDB head, thanking the widows for fighting strongly and making something of themselves and the country. With that, he generously presented a 5 million check to the cooperative.
In closing remarks, AVEGA’s representative first acknowledged Cooperative Ineza for being like “milk that produces butter.” She then highly appreciated RDB for its thoughts and actions. She also admired the Rwandese people’s ubumuntu (humanity). She closed by saying, “God listens to widows the most, and he asks us to take care of them.” The event closed with a prayer of thanksgiving and blessings.
