BASKETS CARRY THEIR OWN SYMBOLISM IN RWANDA AND UGANDA

All Across Africa’s mission is to create jobs and markets to alleviate poverty in Africa. That’s our target. Our aim. Our purpose.

These baskets are handwoven in Rwanda and Uganda.

Because friends give them to celebrate major life events such as weddings, births and graduations, baskets are proudly displayed as symbols of wealth of friends, family and life.

For our weavers, baskets represent status as weaving has made many of them valued people in their society, bringing regular income into their homes. Not only are they able to overcome poverty, but they can also save money, buy land and create new businesses.
