Overview
More
Centre Marembo is a youth-focused charity that aims to improve lives through training and educational support. The Centre Marembo shop is onsite at their vocational training centre in Remera, Kigali. It sells an array of clothes, bags, and other charmingly hand crafted items perfect for souvenirs and presents. All the items are made at the Centre or by their partner cooperatives making it possible to commission your own souvenirs or tailored clothes to collect when they are ready - later that day in some cases. The shop also sells handmade cards, necklaces and earrings if you are short on space but in need of gifts to take home. All proceeds are fed back into Centre Marembo to fund its extensive programme of projects, not only the vocational training centre. The shop helps the Centre fund shelters for vulnerable children, including their medical care, ongoing counseling, and financial support for education. Not only does the shop offer beautifully designed, unique souvenirs, but it also provides an opportunity to support a worthwhile cause.
