Her name is Afsana. She is a refugee living in the Republic of Georgia. The only jobs that are afforded to her are ones in factories working incredibly long hours 6 days a week. She used to work in these factories sewing handbags and making shoes. They let her go because she had tremors in her hands making it difficult to work the large assembly line machines. She could still sew but who would hire her now?
Please meet our latest ministry partner, Work of Her Hands from the Republic of Georgia. They work with 10 Azeri women to enhance and teach skills that they can use to work from home. They invested in Afsana. At 1st she was confused by the intricate patterns but as her confidence grew so did her ability! Now they can give her a pattern and leave her to it and know that what she makes will be well made and beautiful.
I love that they invest in women like Afsana. What the world would instantly cast aside, they saw the potential in her. Kinda like how Jesus sees the potential in each of us. Afsana is so thankful for the work because her husband is experiencing some health issues and now she is able to provide for her family. We have certainly kept her busy! She is the artisan who makes these incredibly cute rabbits!
