Dear sponsors and donors,
We are delighted to share with you that the work of the team of volunteers in Kupang has spread out far and wide, reaching many more weavers’ groups. At the end of March, Ms Doli Febiyany Porwata, our devoted volunteer, visited several weavers’ groups in and around Kupang, East Nusa Tenggara in the month of March & April 2016 and managed to distribute 89 pairs of glasses to 89 happy weavers (please see their happy faces on the gallery below). These weavers have been producing amazing handwoven ikat textile most of their adult lives, they will be delighted show off some of their creations with you. They would be so happy to receive your visit and share their passion with you.
Please contact us if you wish to visit Kupang and the weaving villages, we are more than happy to provide you with guidance and information.
Our sincere gratitude to Ms Olvira Ballo, our Project Manager, who has been supporting the project endlessly throughout this distribution. MEET OUR WEAVERS, IN THE GALLERY BELOW
