Another project we run with our rural women is making beautiful handmade jewellery. The rural women who partake in our project have been taught how to bead and create items such as necklaces and bracelets, which they can do indoors when the conditions do not permit for farming or harvesting. This means that rural women can escape the cycle of seasonal work and begin to provide an income year-round for themselves and their children.
Our rural women have enjoyed learning this new skill which allows them to create necklaces and bracelets that can be sold in order to contribute to growing our projects and helping rural children and youth escape poverty.
Various pieces of jewellery can be bought in our online store.
