Sustainable handwoven baskets Made in Rwanda

Beautiful, empowering and meaningful handwoven basket by Talking through Art in Rwanda. It was founded in 2015 by Petr Kočnar, a young professional from the Czech Republic.

Walking the streets of Kigali, Petr kept noticing destitute people with disabilities. Since he had a previous work experience with disabled people and an art background, he decided to approach them and organize an art therapy program. After the success of his program, Petr officially established his NGO in February 2015 with the dream of helping disabled people gain new skills, confidence, and a place in the job market.

Talking Through Art now has over 80 members in Rwanda. We have also been able to identify sponsors, to support children of our beneficiaries to attend schools.

Our main activity is vocational training in traditional basket weaving. We also provide art therapy, English classes, family planning, and other life skill classes, all in an effort to build confidence of our members, strengthen their self-esteem, and help them become independent and active participants of the Rwandan society.
