Training the children how to paint next door

My title of change....bringing change in my village. But the rivers will go down and we can drive or cross it after September. I don't have to sit until September to come...I've to bring some changes in Addis.

I train girls who came from Canada and England , how to saw, how to use sawing machine, how to crochet and knit. I'm successful with four girls.

Yesterday, I bought paint books for little children next door, they are starting painting. I'll be working with them to improve their skills.

I've got fabrics to train two women in my studio today.

My phone is getting old or...for some reason...I try to post the pictures on Fb , but it brings the back page. Until I post the story and the girls' picture with it, I'm posting any picture from any media.

Keep sharing, and keep bringing changes.

How many people have you impacted since your last update?

Dear Lily,

Offering the chance to learn creative hand work is such a gift to those who are learning from you. Practical and creative skills bring out the best in us, and working together in small groups brings the stories. I love the image of the young ones starting to paint. None of these women and children will forget what you have made possible.

In sisterhood,
