How many of you like to buy gifts for others where your purchase also helps those in need? (This is where I raise my hand and say, “Me, me, me!”) Isn’t it exciting to know that your purchase is making a difference in someone’s life halfway across the world? It truly makes me giddy inside.
Today I want to introduce you to Gloria. Gloria has just learned to sew. Having never touched a sewing machine before, my sister-in-law taught Gloria to sew and is helping her to create beautiful bags and coin purses. Gloria lives in a community in S. Africa called Mbonisweni. For a single woman living in a poor African community where jobs are scarce, providing basic needs of food for your family can be a very difficult task. Not only is Gloria able to be creative with her hands but she’s also able to provide a hot meal and an education for her kids.
On my trip to S. Africa in early August, I brought back several bags and coin purses to sell. Want to help support micro entrepreneurs in Africa? Check out a sampling of what’s available and click here to purchase!
