Gaia Repossi, the Artistic Director of the House of Repossi and Anouck Lepère are dedicated to working together with the Kageno non-profit organization to serve the children of Rwanda. The focus is development in Rwanda and in Kenya by building hospitals, orphanages and schools for the children. Gaia Repossi and Anouck Lepère will spring off of bracelets, cuffs and armbands made of braided rope by Rwandan villagers. The pieces will then be embellished with fine silver and gold chains, as well as with small precious rings. This project brings together the heritage and skill of different cultures, but it also bonds humane commitment, all of profits will go to Kageno, which in Kenyan dialect means “A Place of Hope.”
