Indego Africa, founded in 2007, is dedicated to empowering artisan women in Rwanda and Ghana through employment opportunities and education. The AllPeopleBeHappy foundation has been a longtime supporter of Indego Africa, with a Challenge Grant in 2013-2015, Project Grants in 2013, 2016, 2017, 2020-2022, and Fellows grants in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015.
In 2021 and 2022, Indego Africa conducted a skills training program for refugees at the Mahema Refugee Camp in Rwanda. They were able to teach 150 Burundi refugees basic business skills and to produce high-quality baskets and bags. The AllPeopleBeHappy foundation Project Grant in 2023 is providing this same training to 20 Congolese refugees at this camp. The program consists of 6 months of vocational training in a specific handicraft, then 4 months of basic business training, and providing market access for the entire 10 months. (www.indegoafrica.org)
