The impressive site of sillustani has the potential to hugely contribute to its local community. SPi is working to give that community the skills to make the most of that opportunity
- Beginning in July 2016, the women have received training in weaving and textile production to manufacture a new collection based on local heritage. Expert trainers from nearby cities were able to show them new techniques to strengthen their business.
- Training has now been completed and the women have sold the first items of their new collections, and are working hard to sell more!
the big thing we learned
- It is still early days but group unity and vision is key to a successful project!
- The project is just beginning, there is so much more to do to make this community thrive!
