Ibyishimo Joy Sewing Cooperative
Joy Sewing Cooperative
Founded in June 2011 through Rwanda’s first Vineyard Church, this small association has quickly grown in skill, confidence, and capacity. Ibyishimo means joy: the seamstresses and tailor of Ibyishimo Sewing Cooperative chose their name because of the joy they feel in mastering new skills and being able to earn an income from their work. Their foot pedal-powered sewing machines have been humming: humming with beautiful products; humming with hope for the future; humming with joy. Each individual has overcome great sorrow and many obstacles in life. But now, together, they are humming with joy and hoping and planning for the future.
