Sara's Journey to Sarilla
In a story unlike any other, Sara was hired to work in East Africa in the small country of Rwanda. At the time, Sara had been on her own journey to heal and better herself and found herself in a small country working to heal and recovered from terrible loss.
Rwanda, a country about the size of Vermont, houses over 12 million people and has been recovering from the 1994 mass genocide. Submerged in an intense post-genocide environment, Sara fell in love with the country, its people, and was inspired by their incredible resiliency.
As a survivor of trauma herself, Sara felt blown away by the amazing resiliency of the Rwandan people and their determination to heal themselves and their nation.They inspired Sara to do whatever she could to help them recover and felt emboldened to heal some of her own wounds as well.
Social Connection and a Healing Garden Farm
Invited by the women, Sara would sit and enjoy the unique flavors and aromas of Rwandan tea. Quickly inspired and already looking for more healthy and fun nonalcoholic options, she began experimenting with looseleaf tea and had the idea to carbonate the cold brew she created.
She wanted first to help the environment she had fallen in love with, and she started with a trauma healing program for the PTSD-inflicted community by providing much needed mental health services.
Sara founded the nonprofit organization Africa Healing Exchange (www.HealingExchange.org) before starting Sarilla as a social enterprise.
Sparkling Non-Alcoholic Beverages With Impact
Sarilla Sparkling and Tîma Tea and partners with the female genocide survivors of Rwanda. Together they are building the amazing Ubuzima Healing Garden farm. There, they grow the healing and regenerative botanicals that are used in Sarilla teas.
