EMPOWERING WOMEN

Posted in Posts  by Editor on January 24th, 2013

Kyome Upendo Community Women’s Group

The purpose of Kyome Upendo Community Women’s Group, which was formed in 2011,  is to make and sell sisal baskets, and use a portion of the funds to help orphaned children in their community to attend school.

A new sense of pride and purpose is very evident when these women gladly display their handmade treasurers to anyone who might be interested.  These women are very excited with their ability to earn funds and impact their community not only with upendo – love, but also with financial help.

Graceland Africa Mission has over the last few years supported their efforts by purchasing the beautiful handmade baskets they make.
