La Tienda Co-op

So I've put a link on the right to La's the co-op in the Caraballo village, right next to the school I'll be working at. The store provides jobs for some of the Haitian women in the village, giving a much needed income and hope to the women who live there. They make fantastic jewelry, candles, paper, and other things I know I'm forgetting. It's an incredible project that they have and gives the women a place to work, the feeling of creating something beautiful-which can hopefully be reflected in themselves- and means to live...have a look at the website for more understanding. And if anyone wants some jewelry, especially as Christmas is around the corner, let me know-the money all goes back to the women.
