Zimbabwe: Hand-knitted Toys

Zimbabwe: Hand-knitted Toys

This project supports more than 60 knitters in four projects across Zimbabwe.

Unemployment in these areas is a huge problem (it currently stands at around 97%). The aim of the project is to give hope to local women by providing meaningful employment and the opportunity to use craft skills to build a future for themselves and their families.


Knitting is an ideal activity for generating income as it can be done anywhere, anytime and suits the lifestyles of Zimbabwean women.

Proceeds from the sale of these gorgeous animals help the women of Zimbabwe and the brave, beautiful obstetric fistula patients of Ethiopia.
