As the DuHope Artisans are growing, we are striving to help them build other income generating businesses either through sewing or gardening. These are simple ways for our artisans to build something for themselves outside of the four walls of the DuHope workshop.
We are also focusing on having the ability to provide clean water for all the women. Most of our artisans do not have access to running water in their homes; they often come to the workshop with buckets to fill and take home for cleaning and cooking. We hope to install a domestic water filter at our workshop, which would provide clean the water for not just cooking and cleaning, but for them to have for drinking as well.
