A short way down the hill from the main site is the Amani Women’s Craft Workshop. There they have three old Singer treddle machines, the type I remember my Mum having. With these they make some fantastic bags, aprons and dolls. Pia has worked really hard with them and the girls produce some super stuff. I’ll post some photos of their products in a few days time. So here are Maria who is in charge with Pia, both modelling aprons on the verandah of the workshop.

Little Baruti is Vero’s son. He is only 5 months old and a little corker and holding – yay a TechDis travel mug.

Finally, we all took turns to look after and entertain him – here Maria is doing a grand job.
