5 Ways Dsenyo Spreads the Thanks in Thanksgiving

Here are 5 reasons YOU & women in Malawi can be thankful for Dsenyo

-- #1 -- One Apron = Two days rent for Agness' small, tin-roofed home

-- #2 -- Little Friends = Fertilizer for the ladies in Ndiwasa village helping them grow a year's supply of food for their families

-- #3 -- One pair of Coil Earrings = One new, outfit for Claudine who buys from the trader selling second-hand clothing

-- #4 -- One Hobo = Enough food for Limbikani to feed her family of 4 for a whole week

-- #5 -- One Pot Holder = One bus fare for Jennifer to reach the hospital where she can ge free medication for a young, HIV+ orphan in her care

On a larger scale, your order of $150 allows one of our producers to pay 1/2 a year of school fees for her daughter to attend high school. That's awesome!

Meet Nyozeni, Dsenyo Artisan

At only 22 years of age, Nyozeni Malumo was widowed while pregnant with her first child. Her husband died of AIDS leaving her also infected with the virus; fortunately her daughter is not. Nyozeni works with other AIDS widows in the Mwayiwathu producer group making stuffed animals for Dsenyo. Now that she is making a fair, living wage, Nyozeni is able to buy bus fares to the hospital to get her HIV medication and send her daughter to school. She can now hope for a brighter future for her daughter.
