Doda’s Mission is to alleviate poverty among vulnerable people living in Rwanda by providing a positive work environment, skills training, equipment and employment in the sewing production industry. Fair labor is central to our mission to take a positive role in improving the lives of our trainees and employees.



The primary goal of DODA International is to promote and develop the fashion industry in Rwanda. By developing a sewing workshop that can produce commercial goods for both export and the local market and providing professional skills training, we will create high quality products that can be sold in international markets. Additionally, our goal is to develop a training center that will teach fashion and interior design, commercial sewing, sewing machine mechanics and marketing.

Doda International Rwanda is a Company Limited by Guarantee (Not For Profit) and is governed by a Board of Directors. Doda provides skills training, equipment and employment to sewers and cooperatives to help improve the quality of their products and their businesses. Doda International Rwanda is working in collaboration with Doda International Canada, which is a separate (Not-For-Profit) organization registered in Canada. Doda International Canada provides funds, training and raises awareness for Doda International Rwanda.
