Vikapu Bomba - Laundry basket with maker

Founded by Catherine Shembilu with a group of six weavers.  Weaving has a long tradition in the Iringa and Njombe Region in the Tanzanian Southern Highlands but poverty among local artisans is high. Establishes relationships with experienced weavers who become ‘lead artisans’ in their communities. Lead artisans are supported to recruit and train more artisans and to establish and register their own producer groups. Lead artisans also receive further training to operate their groups as small enterprises – including communicating and monitoring production targets, quality control, bookkeeping and product shipping
