Contact person: Jackie Abrams

I am interested in helping to develop small craft industries within communities in need. The technical assistance I offer includes teaching, producing goods, and marketing assistance. I teach both crocheting and basketry techniques, creating functional objects that may be for sale.  I often work with recycled materials—discarded plastic bags and old clothes.  I have had experience working with women in Ghana, Uganda, and Guatemala.
