Passing on the shawl

One of the women that Women Without Roofs supports in Nepal, called Durga, makes beautiful shawls.  She started this work because the women we support have formed a cooperative and make loans to each other.  Her success has prompted three other women to seek to be trained by her and so this week she spent three days of her precious time patiently teaching them how to make shawls.  With just one spinning wheel between them it took time and perseverance.

It is fantastic to see Durga flourish through teaching them, and for the other women they now have a new skill to help them become independent.  Everyone at WWR is delighted.
