Artisans from Indonesia

Ayu Sewing Project

Impoverished Indonesian mothers struggle with providing basic necessities for their families. Most of their husbands receive a salary of only around $100 a month. These families live from month to month and barely make enough money to feed their families, much less provide for other needs such as schooling.

Ayu Sewing Project was created to help Indonesian women learn a trade that they could use to support their families using their new skills. Originally, they made scarves. By making only a few scarves per week, these mothers are increasing their monthly income by 40%! The women use the money to pay for their children's schooling, medical, and rental expenses.
