Who made this product: Women for Women
While Bosnia and Herzegovina struggle to rebuild after years of violent warfare, many women find it hard to work through the legacy of war and discover their roles in the new reality. They need incomes but often cannot find one that also allows them the time to look after their children. Women for Women International mobilises these women by addressing the unique needs of each one, empowering her through training to find a role that fits her person and her life, resulting in a stable person and income. For some women, the road to renewed life includes making handicrafts like the one you hold. Your purchase supports such women as well as the life-giving programs Women for Women runs in eight different post-war situations.
