Taken from the No. 41 website, here's a little blurb that tells what this group of women is and what they are doing for themselves and for others:
The purchase of a No. 41 bag like these provides one meal a day for one child for one year. Pretty amazing, huh? Why not buy one?
What was really cool, though, was when I pulled out the fabric oven mitts I had just purchased to show the girls I was chatting with and they all exclaimed "Valentine made those!" Sure enough, Valentine was one of the lovely women I had been getting to know, and she graciously allowed me to take her picture with my newly acquired souvenir.
All of this came into being because one young woman from the US visited Rwanda then suddenly decided to move there. She had this vision, this bold dream of action, and actually went and started it. So the next time anyone is tempted to think that one person can't really make a difference, let No. 41 remind us of the truth.
