About the Suppliers – Hand Woven Scarves

This project and has offered employment opportunities to slum dwellers, and educated 25 children beyond secondary education.  The work practices of this project are particularly beneficial to women, as they can operate their spinning machines from home while still attending to their children.

The project has built housing for some of the beneficiaries, which has guaranteed them access to decent living and clean harvested rain water.  Through employment and support, this project economically empowers their members who are infected or affected by HIV/AIDS and reducing stigmatization against them.

They also assist the elderly, who are increasingly becoming the carers of children orphaned by HIV/AIDS.  In return for light duties such as splitting water hyacinth and twisting of ropes, the project covers their living expenses.
