Yesterday was the shop’s monthly umaganda. The last Saturday of each month Rwanda has a national day of working with your neighbors to clean and better your community. Inzozi Nziza has its own umaganda once a month to thoroughly clean the shop.


We clean all of the chairs outside…


We mop all of the floors inside…


We clean the welcome mats…


We even make sure to clean on top of the refrigerator!

My favorite part of the shop’s umaganda is that after all of the cleaning is done, the women prepare a delicious meal! Throughout the month, the women save up their tip money and spend it on having a wonderful group meal on umaganda. It is a very nice reward for a hard day of cleaning and a nice and relaxing time the women can all spend together. I’m looking forward to next umaganda at the shop!
