Thank you Aunt Susan for this gift

Thank you to my Aunt Susan who made a donation in my honor to SERRV in order to give women in Ghana comprehensive basket weaving training. Generations of women in Bolgatanga in northern Ghana weave distinctive brightly-colored bolga baskets. Life is not easy for these basket makers. Farming doesn't provide enough for a family so selling baskets makes the difference between one meal a day to two. This donation provides basket makers with in-depth training dye packets, and bundles of grass to make baskets. It also provides the resources for these basket weavers to be a partner in the Trade Aid Integrated.

Thank you for this gift.
