Capulana training successfully completed!

January 25, 2015

18 women from Supinho have now successfully completed a 2-week capulana training provided by Pelagia, an experienced trainer originally from Zimbabwe.

Pelagia has done amazing work with women in the local communities within Gorongosa National Park, where she is based and we are delighted that she has been able to come and share her wonderful gifts with the women from Supinho. This is the first stage of what we hope to be an ongoing process. During this initial training, the ladies were taught how to make simple shoulder bags. Some went on to learn more complicated things, such as the cute little stuffed toy in the picture! Next time, they will learn to make tops, place mats and other things (to read more, go to ‘Current Projects‘).
