25:40 love was thrilled to partner with No. 41 by donating a portion of our proceeds to this life-changing organization.
No.41 started on a whim and a prayer in March 2012, with the intent of teaching young women from the Noel Orphanage in Gisenyi, Rwanda (ages 18-25) not only to sew, a culturally relevant trade that would always sustain them, but to give back to their community through a feeding program supporting local schools. The first No.41 bag was sold in May 2012 and today they employ 20 women from the orphanage, as well as 10 from the surrounding village. They have 8 mamas better caring for their 12 children and 19 of their young women are now enrolled in university. In February 2013, No.41 opened their first feeding program, providing a hot, healthy lunch to 900+ students and teachers, daily. No.41 is about empowering young women. Their goal is not to give them the world, but to show them that God has already given them everything they need to go out there and take it. When you join with No. 41, you are truly changing the world FOR ONE. No.41 is a testament to all that God wants to do in you and through you, if you’ll just say, yes.
