Every friday, we are introducing you to one of artisans. For todays #fridayintroduction I'd to introduce you to Winnie from Uganda. Although this an older photo, as Winnie's little baby is now 4 years old, this is taken at the time I began partnering with Winnie, so its a special photo to me.
Determined, humble, and hardworking, she founded our Ugandan Artisan group to help single mothers in her community earn an income and support thier children. Why did she do this? Raised by a single mother, her father died when she was very young, her mother struggled to support her and her brothers and sisters. Eventually her older sister took her in and paid her school fees. Winnie has two children and a husband who is currently working in South Africa. Their home has no electricity, kitchen or toilet, something we working to rectify through the partnership with Grace and Able and your support through purchases. So you can see how you are part of something so much more with us.
And don't forget, you can now write to our artisans and let them know how you #wearthechange. Head over to our website and find the form on the Artisans page xo
