Women’s Handicraft Workshop
The Mkonoo Women’s Network have been creating traditional Maasai beaded jewellery and leather bags in their village for years. The beaded jewellery has been for sale in the village and at the local market. Customers have been tourists and proceeds go to support the women’s daily lives in the village. Maasai Leather Bags have been for sale in the United States and Canada.
Terrawatu is now seeking funds to build a workshop for the women of Mkonoo. This will enable the women to properly store materials and work in a more sanitary environment. $12,000 will complete the workshop and enable the women to increase their production of handicrafts to meet the growing demand in both the local and international marketplace.
