Country: Rwanda 

Finance need: 200,000 USD

Year of establishment: 2014

Haute Baso designs and produces high-quality African inspired apparel and accessories and provide training and employment which enables a fair wage within a safe environment. We recognize the potential of young girls by integrating their skills into our value chain through an eighth-month training program. Haute Baso’s vision is for young girls in Rwanda to be economically empowered to contribute towards building stronger communities and economies. In order to be able to scale the business, funding would be directed towards opening two centers around Rwanda to increase the impact and access to training.

Participating in design and production for pieces carried by international retail chains Anthropologie and Macy’s, strengthened Linda’s belief in the ability to showcase Rwanda and empowering the girls she worked with. Haute Baso was selected to be part of the Spring Accelerator 2015 cohort.
