PAST PROJECT: STITCH ST LUCE
Stitch Sainte Luce is a women’s embroidery business project in Madagascar, Africa. This charity project is geared towards community development through providing embroidery training for women. With an emphasis on sustainability, the new skills help women earn a living and alleviate the chronic poverty faced by their families.
The Stitch embroidery project has become integral to the three villages that make up Sainte Luce. Many of the women are married to fishermen and their ability to earn money that does not rely on the increasingly dangerous ocean means that their husbands do not have to take as many risks.
