NEW UMVIM SITE IN USA - INDIANA
CREATIVE WOMEN OF THE WORLD/HAPI
HAPI (Haitian Artisans for Peace International)
Artisans make embroideries that we assemble into greeting cards and there are other similar assembly jobs. The training is done that day in Ft. Wayne and is easily learned. Most jobs are sit-down jobs except for ironing. There are other simple sewing and warehouse organizational jobs that we may do if there are no cards to assemble when you want to come. Creative Women of the World is the main distributor for HAPI. CWOW is dedicated to providing design and business training and marketing opportunities for women living in extreme poverty around the world so they can use the power of creativity to sustainably support their families. Along with Haiti, we work with artisans in Tajikistan, Turkey, India, Kenya, Mexico as well those living in poverty in the US. Other countries continue to be added. www.CreativeWomenof theWorld.com is our website and should be activated very soon. (ADVANCE #3020490 UMVIM Project # NCJ-INC-1011-01 Updated 10/13/11).
