Welcome, Martha!

Welcome Martha, the Knit Production Coordinator!
Welcome Martha, the Knit Production Coordinator!

Dear GlobalGiving Donors,

Thank you for your continuous support and donations to our project of “Empowering Women Through Design in Rural Peru”. We have an exciting announcement to make!

Martha, from our Rumira knitting cooperative, has joined the Awamaki team as our knit production coordinator! Martha is a talented knitter and the treasurer of the Rumira cooperative. At Awamaki, we try to carry out our mission in all aspects of our work, and that means hiring and training staff from the communities we serve. We are training Martha to do knitting design and technical design so that she can work with volunteers to ensure their designs come out correctly. She is also doing quality control for all knit and handspun products, which means managing three different cooperatives! 

By training Martha to create and teach knit designs, we are paving the way for the women artisans to keep taking leadership with product design. “I enjoy working for Awamaki and learning and sharing my experiences with others here. I’m very happy here.”

Please send us your best wishes to help us welcome Martha to our team!
