Laos: CAMACrafts

crafts

Women in Laos work with their hands to sew beautiful handicrafts that are sold by CAMA to provide an income for their families.

CAMACrafts-Laos, a project started in a Lao refugee camp almost 30 years ago, has become a self-sustaining business, which provides income to 250 village women. Income producing work allows women to use their traditional cultural skills to provide and care for their families. Handicrafts are sold in local and foreign markets as part of the goal to lead these villagers toward self-sufficiency, to generate income as an aid to community development, and to preserve and encourage traditional skills and handicraft.
