A year and half ago, I AM YOU, Thistle Farm and women of the camp worked on the creation of a social enterprise program: the Welcome Project.
This project provided wages, activity, more competencies, more sociability. It also offered these residents the opportunity to design and create pillows, Christmas decorations, mats and bags.
Now, it is time for INDEPENDENCE. I AM YOU is really proud to have supported this project and now, we are thrilled they will continue with total autonomy. The 9 women are wives, mothers, and now independent workers in the camp, selling their products in the United-Kingdom and USA.
We wish them good luck in the experience of women's entrepreneurship. If you wish to buy their products: https://lovewelcomes.org/ (upcoming products soon).
