The 1994 Rwandan genocide left thousands of widows and orphans to provide for their families. In 2008, a
group of 180 women from the KOPAKAMA Cooperative
came together to form a Women’s Group. The focal point
of the group was to share in the challenge of rehabilitating
coffee fields in order to earn a better living in the absence of
their husbands. The women raise funds through their coffee
sales to plant a collective coffee field called Ejo Heza, or A
Beautiful Tomorrow. The money has also been invested in
water access for the community and has been used to help
poor members buy cows. The coop has 247 women members
who contribute through their individual and collective farms.
