The Women’s Opportunity Center, in Kayonza, Rwanda, helps was survivors learn to support themselves as farmers and craftspeople. Working with the nonprofit Women for Women International, Sharon Davis Design conceived the center, which opened in June 2013, as a mini-village of rounded, perforated-brick pavilions. Women practice commercial-farming techniques and sell their products-including potable water from rooftops- in a public market. Bricks used in the structure were handmade by the women.
