NEW FLOWER - Ethiopian jewellery collection
This cooperative was started in association with a Christian NGO working to empower
communities through religious and spiritual guidance. This project found its meaning
through the encounter of many women living with HIV/AIDS ostracized from their
community. Most were found on the sacred spiritual Entoto mountain – where they were
sent hoping the chain of mountains would have a miraculous effect on their disease. Far
from the city, looked down on by society, these women had barely enough to survive. Many
refused to resort to begging out of pride, however they were found trying to sell little
handmade objects near churches to get by. The strength and determination of these women
are what inspired this program, which teaches them useful skills and allows each to earn a
fair income. The cooperative works on the principle that handing out monetary and material
aids is not as helpful as creating a supportive work environment where these proud women
can earn an income.
