Women Knit Stockings to Support Their Families

Smyrna Women's Empowerment Centre, Turkey

 

December was a month of joy! It is also the month when our Transformational Community Development (TCD) knitting business was the busiest. But we did our job wonderfully. Our disadvantaged ladies knitted twice as many Christmas stockings as last year and our product was very popular. The women we work with are very happy. One of these women, Harriet*, bought herself a mobile phone for the first time with the money she earned. 

 

As we finished 2021, we all went to a lovely celebration dinner together. Together, we celebrated both our work and the happiest time of the year! Most of these women had never been at a restaurant like this before. Therefore, they excitedly prepared for this dinner and were very enthused. Now, we are looking forward to the production that will take place this new year.

 

Thank you!
