Ploughshare Women's Crafts Training Center, Ethiopia

There's a great training program for single and HIV-positive women outside Gondar, Ethiopia that gives women a chance to learn skills, make a living and lead an independent, proud life. Many women, who are not in a traditional family situation, get turned out by their community and have few options. The Ploughshare Center gives those women an opportunity.

Here we are.

The humble complex.

There are two main crafts practiced: pottery and textiles. And practiced well!

Goods, ready for finishing.

The women also raise a lot of their own food. A storage room, filled with hanging garlic, mmm.
