We may have to change our project title as we are currently working with 200 women! Women bear the brunt of the twin devastations of poverty and HIV yet their will power, their resilience and acceptance is an example to the world. Due to Covid we have been seriously hampered in our work with our talented rural artisans. Only in July have we been able to see groups again. We are currently partnering with The National Trust Commission, COSPE and recently The Green Living Movement, all fine organisations that share our vison of overcoming poverty in Eswatini. Our women need to be economically empowered which will elevate their status in their communities and that is our focus this year. We will be raising funds to revamp our small retail store to make it a Female Fair, Fair Trade store and all of our women will have their products on sale. Let us hope that the world will return to some level of normality allowing people to travel again and visit our beautiful country to support these wonderful women. Here are the links to our social media, hopefully you will connect with us there if you are unable to donate directly.
