Handcrafted Earrings Made By Espwa Girls
Thanks to Espwa visitor Abi from Maine, Espwa girls are now proud jewelry designers! Abi spent an afternoon teaching a group of the eldest girls how to use jewelry-making tools, and they quickly caught on and began to unleash their creativity.
They plan to sell each pair of earrings for $6 at art exhibitions we hold for visiting volunteers. Half of the profits will go to the artist, and half will go to Espwa operations to give back to the organization that has helped them develop these skills.
This will teach the girls basic small business skills, give them a fun outlet for their creativity, and a product they can take ownership of and be proud of. Be sure to schedule a trip to Espwa to buy some for yourself soon!
