This project is in the initial stage with ten local craftswomen having been selected, who are now being trained in making Tibetan clothes, tents, and embroidery. The project also has an additional five sewing machines.
In the next two months, training will be finished and the newly trained women will receive monthly payment (1,500-2,500RMB per month) and an Internet-based shop will sell modern and traditional clothes on-line and feature pictures and descriptions of all items. Meanwhile a retail shop will open in Xining City, the capital of Qinghai Province, PR China.
We sincerely appreciate the 29 donors that contributed 2,680USD that allowed this project to move forward and successfully increased the number of local women to ten as planned.
