VILLAGE VIEW SHOP - HABESHA SHAWLS


Weaving in Ethiopia. These are the weavers at the Good Samaritans Training Center in Addis Ababa.  The organization was founded to help eradicate poverty among young disadvantage girls through free vocational training.  The center also helps homeless children with free meals once a day and provide clothing as needed.  

Ethiopia has a long tradition in weaving natural fabric and embroidery design by hand; by giving vocational training, the GSTS brings hope for job opportunities to many young girls.
