about us

our focus

Azizi is a Swahili word that means ‘precious,’ ‘treasured’ or ‘excellent’ and it is our belief that every person’s life is Azizi.

our connections

Although we sell some of the most beautiful handmade products in the world, sales are not actually our primary purpose. The reason that we exist is to connect people.

We use art to give you the opportunity to meet and get to know some amazing artists and their communities here in Rwanda, and we give the artists the opportunity to connect to a much larger market. This enables them and, by connection, the others in their communities, to rise out of poverty.

It is through these connections and relationships- with God and with one another- that people’s lives, on different sides of the world, will be truly transformed.
