My mind has been all cattywompus since returning to America. The dates on my previous posting about the Amani Ya Juu Holiday Sale are incorrect!
Please note: I will be selling Wednesday – Friday, December 15-17
I went over to Africa thinking that my small efforts just might change the world. Quickly I discovered that the journey was more about self-change than world-change.
Experiences along the way left frayed ends within my heart, unable to make amends with my head. And although my mind fails to reconcile the things I saw and experienced over there, I now know too much to do too little.
As I rolled paper beads with women in Congo, trained with women in Kenya, and taught sewing skills to women in Burundi, I recognized this:
Its trade, not aid, that will help bring change in Africa.
And this week, I’m spreading that message in Milwaukee.
I returned with suitcases full of handmade products from the women I worked with in East Africa. Handbags, jewelry, accessories. These items will be sold
December 16-18 December 15-17 at the US Bank Center.
Come check out the products. Find some last-minute holiday gifts. By purchasing these items, you’ll be providing HOPE to women in need.
Good news: If you don’t live in Milwaukee you can still buy products online!
