The final of three panels of emboidery and stitching - from the work of St. Mary's Mahila Shikshan Kendra. Supporting over 450 women artisans in Ahmedebad in west India who receive benefits in the form of a savings plan, school scholarships for their children, and technical courses to upgrade their skills. An associated maternity hospital and a school completes a remarkable social enterprise 50 years strong. We like!⠀

The second of three panels of emboidery and stitching - from the work of St. Mary's Mahila Shikshan Kendra.  The sisters are Dominican and arrived in Ahmedabad to start a hospital in 1954. Textile mills closed in the 1980's and many men lost their jobs and women, through their embroidery craft, became the sole source of income for many families.⠀

This is the first of three panels of emboidery and stitching - from the work of St. Mary's Mahila Shikshan Kendra - the sisters have been working for more than 50 years with families in the city of Ahmedabad in western India. Love their work and the work of the artisians where women use traditional skills, including beautiful mirror work embroidery, to create works of art. ⠀

More faces on the stage with campesino (rural) workers, rallying for change and denouncing imperialist violations of indigenous Andean culture.  These folks were from the Movement for Socialism Party in Bolivia and supported Evo -- Juan Evo Morales Ayma -- to become the first indigenous President of Bolivia. It was good to read up on all this being some time ago now.🤓 see thee feed to see thee tryptch.

Juan Evo Morales Ayma was not President of Bolivia when I took this photo, it was shortly after in 2006. Evo was a cocaleros activist and rose to prominence by organizing grassroots indigenous organizations (campesino, rural workers) to join unions to contest the government of the day.  As the first (and still current) indigenous President of Bolivia, his work in reducing poverty and illiteracy is acclaimed.⠀

Past travels in La Paz, Bolivia - in search of Fair Trade: if you can believe that - we stumbled upon a rally in the Plaza San Francisco where we spent a number of hours in solidarity.  We didn't know it at the time but in the next pic, someone famous in South America ... This series will be a triptych.⠀
