Maasai Women’s Tailoring Coop

Ten Maasai young women wanted to set up a coop for selling clothing they make.  The Maasai people are very poor and generally have no money but exist on selling goats and cows,  These young women wanted to make their childrens school uniforms as well as make the traditional Maasai Chukas for sale.  Neema Village has set up a small shop for them and supplied them with 4 sewing machines.  They have come to Neema Village for sewing classes and are doing very well.

Orphans are easier to ignore before you know their names. They are easier to ignore before you see their faces. It is easier to pretend they’re not real before you hold them in your arms. But once you do, everything changes.
