What an exciting time!
In the last twelve months, we have been able to expand our program, products and market share.
Earlier this year, two very special volunteers hosted a 6-week sewing class for 8 new women who joined our Creative Community Program (CCP). It was not long before these women were able to use their new skills to start earning a living for their families. Together with our established women tailors, we are helping over 20 women through the CCP. We want to help even more!
While Your Sisters' signature heart bags continue to lead sales in Tanzania safari lodges and boutiques, we are building momentum with our recently introduced quilted patch bag. We are also beginning to explore distribution in the states! In addition, to our heart and patch bags, we are introducing a new beaded Masaai Market basket. This artful and versatile design has been suggested as a farmers' market basket and all-around tote.
In order to meet all these changes and continue our progress, we are working toward building a more consistent 'go-to-market' production. We have many needs as we grow and reach out to more women. Your monthly gift helps greatly with this effort. If you are not a monthly supporter, won't you consider helping us help more women? Donate here.
