6 Days Until International Women’s Day!!

Today’s Group: Heart to Heart Women’s Cooperative

Mwariki Village in Kenya is home to a group of 50 women who were in need of education, skills training, and a dependable source of income. The men of this community worked in cities far away, and the women were left with little to support their families. Nearly everyone in the village has been affected by HIV/AIDS.  The Village Cooperative trained these women in Mwariki Village in Kenya to produce various handicrafts. The cooperative, known as Heart to Heart, was educated on recycled paper jewelry, hand knit wool scarves, hats and gloves, for sale in Kenya and at The Village Experience in Indianapolis. The Village Cooperative has provided Heart to Heart a sustainable source of income and changed the lives of 50 women! 

Support Heart to Heart Women’s Cooperative by shopping at The Village Experience, travelling with us to Kenya, or making a donation. Remember to support the strong women in your life this month!
