Trip By: LEAMIS International Ministries
Location: Kenya, Eastern Africa
When: Customizable: Jan-Nov 2019
In many places macramé and weaving is becoming a lost art. You can use this hobby to help the financial needs of widows and orphans!
Macramé and weaving are especially helpful to women and children – empowering them in so many ways!
In addition to learning a new skill, ideas will be shared on how to market the items made.
The long-term goal of this workshop is to help students learn how a craft can be turned into a self-sustaining “cottage industry.”
The majority of the materials for macramé and weaving are readily available.
We will provide you with a basic workshop outline and project suggestions.
While you are in Kenya, you may want to extend your trip a few days and take advantage of their many safari opportunities.
Through such projects, LEAMIS promotes transformational development by empowering local pastors and believers with the tools and resources they need to impact their communities for Christ. The goal is to multiply the impact by empowering local persons to share what they know with others rather than depending on outside help.
Transformation addresses the spiritual need of recovering our true identity as humans created in the image of God and restoring relationships with God, ourselves, our community and the environment.
Development speaks to discovering our true vocation as productive stewards, faithfully caring for the world and all the people in it. As such, we seek to assist others in developing self-sustaining means to achieve this.
