ABOUT US

The creator of the idea for Baho Neza Swe. Ann is a chiropractor and clown and has visited Rwanda during the autumn of 2018 with Clowns Without Borders to perform for those living in refugee camps. It was there that she first met Radjab and Mudi who are artists in Rwandan Acrobats. After visiting these refugee camps in Rwanda, the idea arose to create an organization to benefit vulnerable women in Rwanda. Thus Baho Neza Swe was created!
