From Local to Global

We are quite proud of our continuing Sisterhood Exchange Program with the women of Mfangano Island , Kenya. Our partnership connects the Mother's Day Mile community with the HIV + women of Western Kenya. Whether it's domestic or sexual violence or the stigma of HIV/Aids women need help to provide for their families through work, empowerment, and self sufficiency. This year all our race awards will be hand crafted by women and men using treadle sewing machines, indigenous fabrics, and local beads. This is a Fair Trade Cooperative that pays a salary to the artisans. If you would like to join our partnership as a Sisterhood Exchange Program sponsor please contact Nancy Reinisch, at nrein@rof.net or (970) 945-6102
