OUR ARTISANS IN HAITI
Asurene, Haiti Women Association, Premier Faustin, Port-au-Prince
In her video interview, Asurene explains that she is sewing bags and purses to support orphans that she has taken into her home to pay for their schooling and food. She was never able to have children and so she has taken in children from the street by herself.
"Making this beaded jewelry is fun work for me to do. With the money, my family is already eating better. I am happy Women Sewing By Faith came to Premier Faustin and I have a job."
"Since I started working with Women Sewing by Faith through the Haiti Women Association, I have been able to provide for the orphans staying in my home to ensure they have two meals a day and can go to school."
