You know the phrase, “Empowered Women Empower Women”? We have seen this brought to life and made true! Our Kantha handicraft groups are led by women who themselves started out as a member learning handicraft work. The artisan groups provide a space for women to come together in community. Our women are committed to meeting weekly in small groups in their neighborhoods to work on handicrafts, but beyond this, to be available to do everyday life together, through love, support, and encouragement. We believe that all people are valuable and worthy, and we want artisan women to believe this about themselves, too. They are wives, mothers, daughters, and friends with skills that can grow and expose their own self-purpose.
