Bags to riches

I have inherited my mother's love of puns. I have also inherited her desire to see women lift themselves out of poverty -- what ten young women from Robertsport are doing as members of the Women's Sewing Cooperative, sewing beach bags by hand that you can order here.

With your support, their numbers will grow. I look forward to a blog post in a month or so about the impact their additional income is having in their lives and the lives of their families.

Check out this article on the importance of women-focused development and support Liberian women by buying some bags!

We'll have yoga mat bags and coin purses soon.

  2. Elie - My dad loved puns, and I inherited that too. No wonder we're friends.
