In a post-genocide environment Willa Shalit spearheaded the Path to Peace project which developed an American market for Rwandan women’s crafts. The collection creates trade partnerships with artisans in recovering regions to bring the power of change to Africa and Indonesia.

In less than two years the project has achieved unparalleled success in bringing economic security to the women of Rwanda. Their are several items including bracelets ( O Bracelet and Sister bracelet), necklacesbaskets (which are the number one export out of Rwanda under the African Growth an Opportunity Act) and bowls.
