There’s so many ways to “walk the talk” of women social and economic inclusion. This project is one of them.
About the project
Prison Crafts is a model created to tackle the challenges of both fabric waste and employment for women who return to their families and communities after jail time. It’s a model originally developed by Minka.
Impact and Main Outcomes
Can fabric waste be used to develop programs in prisons to craft high-quality products, able to provide stable income to women and mothers who struggle to access trainings and jobs? Yes. This program is particularly powerful in contexts where meaningful consumption is beating standard, low-cost one.
