The Zimbabwe Artist’s Project is hosting a special celebration! Join us and other Fair Trade advocates in welcoming Mr. Kelvin Hazangwi, a special guest from Zimbabwe. There will be a Fair Trade Marketplace, an exhibit of Weya art, live African music, snacks, and a craft table for the kiddos! NWFTC and ZAP will be joined by these wonderful organizations, all with items for sale or information on getting involved with their projects!
The Zimbabwe Artists Project is a non-profit organization that helps women artists from Weya in Easter Zimbabwe become more economically self-sufficient. Women of Weya are subsistence farmers, mothers, and householders as well as artists. Most women live on their own, providing for families. Some are widowed, others are single heads of households, since throughout Zimbabwe men leave the rural areas to seek work in cities. ZAP helps these women through education opportunities and through the sale of their artwork.
Join the celebration, and support ZAP and these other great organizations!
