Artisan Organization: Dreamer & Co
Country: Horn of Africa
Dreamer & Co partners with a group of women artisans who have been trained to create handmade paper bead jewelry. These women come from low-income families and they are sisters, mothers, friends, and hard workers.
The desire of Dreamer & Co is to work side-by-side with these women helping them to expand their market into the United States, but they don't want to stop just there! They are also constantly thinking of ways to help them flourish in their daily lives, to become empowered and dignified, and see themselves as the strong, independent women they are.
