For ten years, Macy’s has been committed to this trade-not-aid program. Basket weaving is a traditional craft in Rwanda and these women create baskets for a living. Macy’s Rwanda Path to Peace provides a platform for economic empowerment.
Macy’s CEO Terry Lundgren and co-founders Janet Nkubana of Gahaya Links and Willa Shalit of Road to Market, LTD. share the story of why Macy’s started this program and how it continues to changes lives.
