Support two schools in Moqattam, Egypt, for desperately poor girls and women who turn Cairo’s trash into Beautiful Things: Rugs, Quilts, Purses, Stationery and Embroidered Cards. Women’s marginalization and poverty has increased considerably, so come shop to help Suzan ’54 and Nimet ’67 Habachy keep the schools open and dreams for a better life alive.
Items for sale are based on recycling. There is paper from Cairo’s office trash, embroidered cards and attractive stationery items, and quilts and rugs, potholders and purses made from remnants from the textile mills of Egypt. Proceeds from the sale of these items, keep the schools open.
