Thanks to our supporters we could raise funds and have already started with the textiles project. About 10 women are now actively designing and sewing home textiles, bags and fashion. We bought sewing machines, an overlock, and beautiful African wax print kitenge and kente cloth. With the support of the NGO eco+culture, a training and work space has been identified and the women can work in this room at the Bahati House in Jambiani for the time being.
The next Training Workshop will start in July 2017, with volunteers from Austria supporting Safi Sana Zanzibar.
More news on that to follow.
