More Info

The project Madres-Cabeza de Familia y sus Cocos (Women, family patriarch and their coconuts) is an association of 15 women that in 2008 completed a crafts class sponsored by the foundation ProBoquilla which taught them to produce jewelry, silverware, containers, vases, belts and accessories. They founded a small company and work together in the backyard of the company’s president. In order to fabricate something out of a coconut several steps as well as a lot of time is required. The nuts are being soaked, cleaned and cut for several hours and then in several steps worked and polished. The life of those Damartes (Damas de Arte = Women of Art) is very impressive. All of them are mothers shaped by their life story, supporting their families in a small fisherman's community. The association is a working group of great women that manufacture great things out of simple means. We would like to provide them with updated tools necessary for them to continue with their work. Please help us reach our goal so we can ship these tools out to them.
