(Sessions every Saturday 1-5 PM)

The pilot project began here, in a small, hot room of a day care center run by a social welfare foundation, in a very poor area of Manila. We’d go there every Saturday from 1-5 PM, hoping that some women would show up.

Glo was assigned to head the group, but her distrustful husband would not let her participate. When we held our workshops, she’d sit at her fried banana stand across the street, not wanting to miss a sale.

Celia’s true talent is making fabulous costumes!

73-year-old fabulous PAZ made our first bag at Barangay 157. When asked why she’d joined our workshop she said that she was hoping to find a sponsor for her 13 year old son David because she “is old already”. Childless, at 60, she and her husband were literally handed a baby. With no dependable means of support, they have for many years depended on handouts from family members
