Over recent months the beading group at Centre Marembo has been developing a range of necklaces that are specifically designed as a simple family planning method. The beads represent a womans monthly cycle and help women to track the days and their fertility.
The idea was brought to the centre by a doctor from Austria who has been working closely with Centre Marembo and national family planning bodies in Rwanda. We are delighted to report that Centre Marembo has been commissioned to produce and market the necklaces in Rwanda.
This is a great opportunity for the beading group and it is hoped that it will also have a positive impact on women and families in Rwanda and beyond.
