“I went to Rwanda as part of a study abroad program through Virginia Tech. We worked with various NGOs across the country, teaching English and math skills. I personally worked with OPDE. OPDE workes to protect and develop children in Rwanda."
- Traveler Farrell Strueber
While in Rwanda, Farrel found some free time to R’wander about in the countryside. In his own words, he had “never seen anywhere so green and lush in [his] entire life.”
"The design and vibrant colors immediately caught my eye while I was exploring the local market. The design is local to Rwanda and the pattern is very common on fabrics offered by merchants and tailors.”
Thanks for the Rwa’some fabric find Farrell!
Here’s to R’wandering around in someplace new & to feeling good—because after all, it’s Friday!
-the Taaluma Team
The Middle East is known for its ancient history, vast deserts, and religious roots.
From being caught in the pyramid-dle of history in Cairo, to taking in the Israeli great views of Jerusalem, to resting on the Abu’ndant sands of Abu Dhabi.
It’s been 8 years since the idea for Taaluma Totes was born while on a life-changing trip to Uganda.
Since then, we’ve been able to fund 41 microloans for small business owners living in Uganda.
From Moses, a 24-year-old coffee farmer who used his loan to buy mulch.
Taaluma travelers have had a very gouda time in Holland over the years.
From getting caught in a Holland-daze over the beauty of the land (and to becoming a big fan of the windmills), to discovering the magical world of Nether-Netherland, to having a wheely good time petal-ing around the city.
