These bags were made by sewing students in Grande Saline, Haiti. Students learn to sew by hand and with solar-powered machines. Your purchase will support the school where women and men in Grande Saline can learn a trade that will help them to support their families. (visit: www.healthforhaiti.org for more details). We are helping them learn how to run their own businesses so that they can become self-sufficient. They are very hard-working people and are learning fast!
