Welcome to My House…..

We did some visitation to homes of the women

 who are a part of the cooperative “Women of Action”…

30 women are making crafts to sell so that they can provide for their families…

some are widowed, some are single moms…

they all want to step out of the “tortilla” box….

…welcome to our house….

This sweethearts are 2 of 13 children that live in the 2 houses

on the property…both moms are widows….

…this is one house,

dirt floor, no electricity, no water…

the moms have lived here 4 years and the rent has gone up 4 times..

There is no rent control or WCB to protect them…

last year they saved enough money to have a proper toilet put in….

outside….

…this is the other house, one room…

the black plastic is to keep the rain out….

…welcome to the kitchen…

the laminate is following off the roof,

the smoke from the wood fire to make tortillas is very bad

for both of the moms….

But, everyone makes tortillas because generations in my family have….

…another kitchen….

…please come in….

one mom, and five kids!

…thank you for coming to visit my house….

…meet our “Mujeres de Accion”

Women of Action…..

this committee will be running the program….so great!

…meet some of our cooperative…

 …sew this is one of our projects…

This is a “trash bag” we have been collecting chip, Tortrix, etc bags, washing them,

then making handbags…keeping our end of the community clean…

we also have bracelets, earrings and belts…

Sew….how many small chip bags does it take to make one hand bag?

A prize awaits……

Many of these willl be returning to Canada in May, 2012….

Past the seeker as he prayed came the crippled and the beggar and the beaten.

  And seeing them… he cried,

“Great God, how is it that a loving creator can see such things and yet do nothing about them?” 

 God said, “I did do something.  I made you.”  ~Author Unknown

some have husbands who are finding it hard to find work….
