This weekend, the Travel for Impact team made the trek from Maun up to Shakawe. The team stopped in at Ngwao Boswa – Gumare, Ngamiland Basket Weavers Trust – Etsha, and Shakawe Craft Centre – Shakawe to deliver marketing materials and check in with the lovely ladies of Crafthood.
The Crafthood initiative, launched in partnership with SAREP, aims to increase the profile of weavers throughout northern Botswana and market the incredible potential of Botswana’s craft market.
At each of the centres, individualized posters and other marketing materials were dropped off. These posters highlight the individual weavers working at the centres. As evident in the pictures, the ladies were delighted to see their faces represented and were excited to put them up.
If the rains are any indication, then 2017 will bring a very prosperous year. We look forward to profiling these incredibly talented weavers and bringing you their stories.
