These vibrant Valentine’s Day cards are from a series of designs created by our team of young women in Shingirirai’s Skills Development program. By selling these and other items, they go another step towards supporting themselves and their families – in ways that don’t exploit or endanger them.
Necessity might go some way to explaining the exuberance of the designs. But I’m still amazed at how the girls and their tutors find the skill, energy and sheer ‘shingirirai‘ (that’s ‘perseverance’ in the native Shona language) to put their bold bright hearts into each new initiative.
There are several designs in the set, and a great tote bag to go with. Bit late to buy today, but let me know if you’d like to see the other designs. After all, a heart isn’t just for Valentine’s day!
