Kicukiro: women who were supported to learn tailoring lack capacity to buy machines
Recently in March 2019, Rwandan women who were undergoing the needy life situation got material support including Tailoring machines from women in Germany Diaspora.
The community of Rwanda’s women in Germany supported these women in Rwanda to contribute to the development and resilience of the country.
