  • 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. The staff leave you to explore and visit without hovering over you. A portion of the proceeds goes to helping street children through their own local non-profit. Beautiful and stunning pieces were there. If you pay in USD, you can get a slight discount.
