Welcome on the web site of ISHEMA.
The word ishema means pride and that is where we stand for as women from Rwanda living in The Netherlands.
Physically we are far away from our beautiful country, but in our harts and minds we will always be so nearby.
We are proud of our background, our culture, traditions and art.
By means of our association we like to bring together all Rwandese women in the Netherlands, developing their skills and preserve our heritage. We want to be there for those women from Rwanda who can use some support in hard times.
For social reasons we start projects like the one we do now, by selling decorations from Rwanda, made by the Association "Haguruka" (translated: Stand Up) The Association for the Defense of the Rights of the Woman and the Child.
