We support weaving groups in many countries in Africa, each providing a unique type of high quality basket. Basket weaving provides specific opportunities to each weaver and their family. One example is a weaver in South Africa that used to leave his family for long periods to work on jobs as a bricklayer. Now through his weaving, he is able to live more traditionally with his family. He pays all expenses including school fees for 4 children and has doubled the size of his house and furnished it. In his words: “I am proud to know that people from a place so far away appreciate my work. I am a man working in humble conditions in Africa being supported by people from across the world.”
