Things are starting to take off with the women empowerment project. It has been delayed a number of times but this past saturday I met for the first time with crafts-women in the Meheshwar region. I was blown away by the talent and skills that many of the women already have. Currently Hannah Warren, a young and passionate designer, has embedded herself in the region for the past 3 months and has began her own project called Swing to help improve the lives of these women. We may just join forces with Hannah in the hopes of reaching as many women as we can. Below are a number of women that I met with in a tiny  pink room. We spoke for an hour and went through a number of pieces that they have created.
