There are projects where you can feel the heart of those who are running them neat and bright. This is the case with Khetu Kamba, an NGO created by Sara García Betorz, an environmentalist from Barcelona.
She worked in Mozambique for 3 years. There, she discovered in the south of the country women making baskets and started ordering a few to bring them back to Barcelona and sell to support the community.
She ended up creating the non governmental organization Khetu Kamba.
She is moved by a passion for crafts and a daily commitment to support and empower the artisan communities to preserve their cultural heritage and their access to decent work.
Now there are more than 30 artisans working on this project, mainly women. Sara keeps her job as an environmentalist and at the same time runs Khetu Kamba. Bravo Sara!
