Spotlight on Scene East

Shop with Scene East and support Women for Women International!

Scene East offers high-quality greeting and holiday cards featuring photographs of the beauty of Rwanda. The company donates a portion of its sales to Women for Women International.

Scene East’s co-founder Melissa Cook is a sponsor of women in Rwanda through WfWI and first visited her sisters in 2009. She fell in love with the country and its people, has now visited Rwanda three times and has sponsored 14 women. Melissa tells us she is in awe of the resilience and tenacity of the women in our program. She also loves to shop in Rwanda’s markets to buy gorgeous textiles and artwork that will make beautiful greeting cards.

Melissa combined her finance and business experience and her love of photography with the artistic and entrepreneurial skills of her husband, award-winning motion picture director Bob Demchuk, to create Scene East’s greeting card business.

Cards are available through a secure online store here, through and at select independent retailers.
