We are happy to share the news with you: we just received our first donation to the foundation, raised by our Norwegian friends. Today we had a meeting with the village women to inform them about the happy news, and it was truly happy women who left us to continue their daily tasks, filled with new hope of better business opportunities in the future.
Our plan now is to start produce baskets according to fair trade principals, where we guarantee that the women are paid a fair price for their baskets. We will also be able to provide material for weaving, which will make it easier for the women with a very tight budget who sometimes struggle to buy the material themselves.
We are truly happy for the donation – thank you so much!
