Why Work Of Our Hands Is Important

Imagine: Surviving on $2 a day. I can’t, but these women & their families do. Everyday. Now, that is a difficult life, but Valerie Garber decided to make a change by establishing Work Of Our Hands, a non-profit that teaches handmade craft skills to the unemployed in Nambia, Africa.

1. Give dignity & hope for the unemployed. When children are starving and there is no work, life can be depression,

2. Teach handcrafting and business skills.

3. Impart new life skills and new ways of thinking.

4. Establishing self-employment and independence.

To support Work Of Our Hands, pick up their handmade creations at their shop, African Whimsy. You can also discover more about the community at their blog.

This holiday, be thankful for what you have, share it and support those that don’t and continue to do so after the “season” ends. It’s what life should be about whether it’s Christmas or not!
