About Kakira Imigongo Cooperative

The cooperative is made of 15 women, most of whom are widows as a result of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi. The women of Kakira design and create reliefs on wooden panels using cow's dung. Once the cow dung has dried, the works are painted, dried again, and ready to be used as decoration.
