Meet the Women’s Groups

Meet the Women’s Groups

 

CGD supports two Maasai women’s groups in rural Arusha, Tanzania: the osiligi women’s group, osiligi meaning “hope,” and ereto women’s group.

In a spirit of action, these women’s groups band together to make beautiful jewelry and kangas in hopes of building income to mediate access to food, water, education, and healthcare and secure a better future for the children of the community. Even still, the women face challenges, including difficulty accessing the market and cost of materials.
