We were privileged to be invited to spend the morning(16/11/2013) with some lovely grandma's from the Tuesday women's Fellowship Group of the Anglican Cathedral of The Holy Cross. The group is made up of 28 retired women with different professional backgrounds, from Secondary School teachers to Doctors! :) The women meet to for bible study as well as to sharpen each others skills in arts and crafts. According to Mrs. Kayumba, the group Chairperson, the women use this fellowship and the pieces created for self-sustainability and value addition in less privileged communities.
The women use the funds earned through their art to finance a community primary school established in 2000 that they built in Lusaka's Chainda area.
We loved how open minded they are despite their age (we were quick to take down a few notes for our own DIY projects!). To order your own custom made piece, call: +260977532519 or email
We were invited by the beautiful Ms. Jacqueline Stein of 'House of Globelle', which is a collective global cooperative of women around the world using international standards of design and local talents, creativity and infusion of local design to create something globally appealing. House of Globelle, according to Ms. Stein places an emphasis on empowering women by bringing them an income and the essence of innovative design.
