Introducing Cirendeu Handicrafts
At XSProject, we are committed to supporting the young women and mothers in the Cirendeu community who want to earn their own income by gaining skills to start their own businesses.
Womanesia a club of students at the Jakarta Intercultural School, is leading a project that sent two mothers, Darni and Rokhana to sewing classes for the past 18 weeks.
They started as beginners and have now graduated from the advanced level class. They have already begun accepting orders for clothing and household items.
In May, Yuni, another mom, joined the group. She had been working as a sewer in a factory. She received so little salary she could not support her family. Now, by using her skills, she has opportunities to show and sell her ready to wear at bazaars and to acquire new customers. Thank you to Womanesia for their continued support by promoting and advertising in their international community for these mom’s.
Here in the US, Darni, Rokhana and now Yuni are the mothers who sew the Little Girl Dresses available for sale ($20 each) on our website. Sales from these dresses go directly back to these three women.
In addition to Darni, Rokhana and Yuni, there are six other young women and mothers who are creating and making jewelry…from trash! These products will soon be available for purchase on our website.
Some great features of the jewelry are that all earring wires are hypo-allergenic, much of the jewelry is created using paper beads they make by hand from magazines, earrings and necklaces from plastic wrappers and discarded batik scraps and earrings made from the inner tubes of motorcycle tires. Sales from the jewelry go directly back to these mothers.
The women have decided to call their business Cirendeu Handicrafts. We hope you will support them with your purchase of their products on our website and at our conferences and trade shows.
