Transforming old to new (1/8)

Throughout this pandemic I have been keeping myself busy with work to reach more customers and clients and by engaging myself make me to stay safe.

at least one or two products will be produced in a day and also passing it to other young girls through my free teaching skills program to community level so they will be empowered and be roll modelsin their own communities.

I know by empowering women you empower the world and am passionate about empower young people especially Women.

And by September I and my team will reach more vulnerable areas to help them with the skills so they will be capacitated and stay of from violence,drug abuse,teenage pregnancy,and many more.

Hi Mariama,
This piece looks really beautiful. Thanks for sharing. I wish I could learn from you too. Do you teach online? 'Glad we both share the passion of empowering young women. An empowered women has what it takes to stand against abuse.

We would like to read more from you and your creative team. It's awesome that your focus would help young people stay out of the streets by empowering them with life-long skills.

Thank you for all you do, Sis. :)

That is beautiful artistic work Mariama. So impressive!

Good on you for passing it on to others. Is it a challenge to get the raw material /old furniture to work with?
Well done and all the best for your business.
