Our Markets with COVID 19
With lockdown/quarantine initiated early in Rwanda, and later in Kenya, we had temporarily ceased having all markets till further notice.
This didn’t stop us from continuing to work with vendors from Rwanda and Africa while still practising social distancing, through our online platform
We adapted and learnt new ways of continuing with our work and in the journey of promoting our mantra #buylocalsupportlocal
However, we kept thinking of how we could get back to our markets, while keeping the welfare of our vendors and supporters at the forefront. The answer was simple…regulate the number of people attending the market
Click & Collect Weekend Market: X-Mas Edition
Introducing the CLICK & COLLECT WEEKEND MARKET: X-MAS EDITION – 5th &6th Dec 2020, 1000-1800hrs, Kigali Serena Hotel at the auditorium
