This set was designed by Clarisse in Gisenyi, Rwanda. She painted each of these beautiful oil paintings on full size canvases, which we then transferred to a set of cards.
Clarisse is a talented artist and university student, and comes to us recommended by the wonderful girls at No. 41 (another one of our impact partners based in Gisenyi, Rwanda). Clarisse is strong, hardworking, dedicated, and did we mention talented?
Born in 1990, Clarrise came to the Noel orphanage in Gisenyi at four years old when both parents were killed in the Rwandan genocide. Clarisse is so happy to be attending university and using her special art skills.
For every purchase, Marie Mae will provide an hour of business training to a woman entrepreneur in a developing market.
