Empower artisans with work and financial independence
KISANY aims to establish skills and build opportunities for dignified work in poorer communities. In building a market, a supply and a demand, we aim to create long term solutions and help transform the lives of primarily women in DR Congo and Rwanda.

Through this partnership a portion of profit is directed to provide healthcare, education, micro-financing and social support in the Kivu region of DR Congo.
