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.
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!
