Every gift tells a story

Vikapu Bomba in Tanzania embodies the vision of Catherine Shembilu to create sustainable income for talented, rural  women. For many women living in the lush southern highlands, life centers around subsistence farming, cooking, cleaning, and caring for children. Women can weave baskets between their other duties, working daily to earn money to pay school fees, buy food, procure farming supplies and contribute to savings. When a woman has money of her own to use or share, she has greater influence over her life and future.
