Overview
More
We offer a unique opportunity to experience life in Rural Rwanda. Come on one of our 2 hour or day long workshops and try your hand at everything from subsistence farming to learning how to weave your own Rwanda craft. If you come for the day then lunch is included and it gives you the chance to chat with your hosts and really learn about their life. You can do one day or more and we can even tailor the experience to meet the needs and interests of your group - just ask us for more details. We also offer guided hike around the beautiful hills and valleys around Muhanga and then during the months of May to September we also offer a traditional coffee experience. We can put the workshop on any day and time that works for you.

A day in the life of an artisan was a wonderful experience. There's a huge difference between hearing stores, knowing what life must be like, and actually living that life for a day. It really changes one's perspective - for the better. Would highly recommend...More
