Knitted toys, Zimbabwe

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

Unemployment in these areas is a huge problem (it currently stands at around 97%). The aim of this project is to provide meaningful employment for women, as well as hope as they have the opportunity to use their 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 lifestyle 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.
