Stop At: Azizi Life Experiences, RN1, Gitarama, Muhanga, Muhanga Rwanda

In the morning you collect water and soil, which you are taught how to turn into mud bricks. After making bricks, you dig the foundations and learn how to lay the bricks in a way to ensure the building is strong. Share a simple home-cooked lunch with your host family. After this you collect banana leaves, which you are taught to make into a strong rope that can be used to lash wood together.

At 8am there will be a briefing at the office before being transferred to the community and be welcome by artisans and go to the family home of the artisan who is your host for the day. In the morning you will fetch water or help with food preparation. At 9.45am the day activities begin where you can learn the rural construction techniques including making rope from banana tree and bricks from mud. The artisans will show you how to do the activity and will work alongside you.

Lunch will be served at 12.30pm and will be a typical Rwandan dish e.g. cassava and beans. This is a good time to ask your hosts about life in their community. They may have questions for you too about life in your home country.

At 1:30pm the afternoon session will begin where you can use traditional techniques learnt in the morning to build domestic animal’s shade, a fence or a house. The session will end at 2:30pm and you will be transferred back to the office for a cold drink. You will then have the opportunity to shop for gifts and souvenirs at the Azizi Life store. We have a wide range of high quality handicrafts for sale, including those made by the artisans you visit.

Duration: 8 hours
