Experience the daily life of rural people is an experience is for anyone wanting a real taste of village life in Rwanda. The entire experience lasts for a whole day and involves most of the aspects which are normal for anyone living in a Rwandan village. The tour takes place in a village near Rubavu town and the income generated by these tours is used by Young Women to improve the lives of the members of the association and their families.

The experience starts in the morning with a drive to a nearby village from the Young Women Destination Office. At the village, you will be greeted with some traditional welcome songs. After introductions from your local hostess, a morning of family chores begins. The day normally starts out in the kitchen where you will help out with the daily chores. After this, you will continue outside where you will get a taste of a normal day of village life. We can assure you that it is very different from a 9 to 5 office worker in the west. Collect water from the local tap, cut grass for domestic animals, and get out in the fields for seasonal agricultural activities.

At lunchtime, locals from the village meet and share a local meal at one of the families’ homes. There is no stress for most people here and always plenty of time to chat, joke, and learn about each other. After lunch, you will join the artisans of the village for an afternoon of handcrafting. You will learn how to make bags and other souvenirs from traditional fabrics. They will get the chance to create their own piece and take it with them. The day ends at the Young Women destination office where you can browse through some of the beautiful crafts made by the artisans of Young women Destination.
