While many businesses are closed down in Burundi due to threats of civil war, All Across Africa remains one of the few still open. Their artisan weavers, thanks to a partnership with the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), have wanted to keep working so that they can maintain income and some sense of normal life. In the past few months since the violence has broken out, these artisans have created what they are calling "products of peace", handwoven colorful bracelets with a simple charm that reads "handmade" or "made with love". These bracelets are literally the only source of income for the artisans in a country where many people are facing constant protests and violence. Be a part of our partner's work to restore some semblance of normalcy to the lives of their artisan partners.
