A group of us went and were made very welcome with a coffee ceremony while the work of this training centre was explained. I came away full of admiration for them. There is an opportunity to purchase some of their handmade goods but no pressure to buy.

This is one of those good ideas that could be great NGOs. Yes, there's a decent oversight, however it could be so much more. They do get enough visitors and 'outside' help to maintain themselves -- but the management is terribly inconsistent. With some better marketing and organization, the women could really have a fantastic enterprise there. They do take wonderful care of their grounds and their livestock. The pottery I great and the weaving is good.

We a warm welcome by Tesla,the director of the project who gave us a very good overall view into the good work this facility is doing. They work with, as she said, “the poorest of the poor” especially single women living with HIV/AIDS and women recovering from fistula surgery,. They do verious handicrafts such as pottery, weaving, making baskets, etc. They are currently trying to raise funds for a building where they can house the babies of these women — such a great cause that we all chipped in! Well worth a visit to see how local women are helping each other.

Ploughshare helps single women, many with disabilities, learn a craft, so they can become self sufficient. It's one of those organizations doing great work, helping people help themselves - and the results are impressive. When you visit, if the founder/manager Tesfalem is available, definitely have her show you around. From weaving to pottery, the women sell nice handicrafts that make a good gift - or a memento for your visit to Ethiopia.
