Beautiful Rwandan art and clothing with a mission to support Ramadan children with school subsidies and supplies through 40% of sale proceeds.
Less known than other arts centers in the area, Niyo featured several artists from and around Rwanda. The space was filled with art work of various sizes and styles.

Beautiful and stunning pieces were there. If you pay in USD, you can get a slight discount.
