We believe it is important to support ourselves as much as possible and we rely heavily on selling hand-made products by the children and the mothers.
TRADITIONAL KAREN WEAVINGS
We employ one woman to weave products to raise money for our home. In exchange for a reliable monthly salary, she makes unique products for us to sell through volunteers and our website. Products are available made-to-order too. If we don’t already have an item in the color you are interested in, she can make one!
A few of the older girls have been getting sewing and weaving lessons and are now also making these products. They sell them at the Saturday night market in Sangkhlaburi. The money earned goes into their own bank account to help save for future further education.
