Women’s Development Project

(Posted on 15/11/12)

The charity helps to support the work of the small craft project run by the Daughters of Charity whose remit is to work with the poor and marginalised. Here women learn the skills of embroidery and produce beautiful embroidered cloths which range from small Ethiopian scenes, often of a religious nature and following typical Ethiopian art traditions, up to large altar and table cloths. A range of these goods can be seen on the separate page where they can be ordered. They are bought at the local selling price so could be described as being ethically traded as they are bought at the going rate set by the project themselves.
