Who Are Inshuti Workers
Inshuti Workers Content
Inshuti workers are members of our growing Inshuti community. Many house recipients become workers in subsequent builds, while workers often become future house recipients. It’s a repeating cycle that has helped create our growing Inshuti community.
Initially, the most critical aspect of our mission was building houses to shelter those in need. As our project expands, we realize how job creation has impacted the Inshuti community. Our two-prong approach to community development provides houses to those living in deplorable conditions and ensures employment for families to support themselves.

Consistent employment

At Inshuti of Rwanda, we provide consistent work to our community and also pay our employees a liveable wage. For many, the volatility and lack of job opportunities are the norm; most days, people are without work. We are committed to ensuring that our crews have reliable employment and a frequent raise. In 2023, we budgeted a 20% raise for all Inshuti masons and workers to guarantee they can support their families.

Supporting neighbors

A culture of giving is naturally woven into Rwanda's society. The majority of people within the Inshuti community desire to help their neighbors; however, their limited resources often prevent them from being able to do so. Inshuti jobs are more than just employment; by working with Inshuti of Rwanda, many can fulfill their desire to help their neighbors and strengthen the community they live in.

We ensure an ethical and respectful workspace at our house-building sites. Inshuti's belief in providing a respectful and safe space for our crews opposes the conduct many impoverished persons commonly experience in day-to-day activities. Unfortunately, the social-economic status of our Inshuti community often results in cruel treatment by employers. We aim to prevent, stop and change this behavior by respecting each Inshuti worker.
