Our Partners

Africa New Life

Africa New Life works to support women, children, and families in Rwanda through a variety of ministries. The initial concept for New Life Threads was inspired by Africa New Life Ministries, and the two organizations are very closely tied. The seamstresses who make New Life Threads products are trained at Africa New Life’s Family Center in Kigali, Rwanda. Now, New Life Threads gives most of the profits back to Africa New Life to fund a part of the sewing and vocational programs for women, as well as fund special projects related to Africa New Life’s other ministries. The support of Africa New Life staff members in Rwanda is also integral to the operations of New Life Threads. Learn more >


Tabbies is a “daughter organization” to New Life Threads. Tabbies sells doll clothes made to fit 15-inch dolls, including American Girl dolls. The doll clothes are sewn by the same seamstresses who make New Life Threads products, and 100% of profits also go back to help the women and families in Rwanda. Learn more >
