Member of the cooperative Borneo Braid with self-dyed fabrics

Success story from Kalimantan

In the province of South Kalimantan, it is not easy for women to earn an income. Opportunities are offered by traditional crafts such as weaving, braiding or the dyeing of fabrics. To be successful, it takes a lot of knowledge and a network - after all, the products not only have to be made, but also marketed. To cover all areas, women from South Kalimantan have organized themselves in the cooperative "Borneo Braid". In this way, they continue the long-standing project work of Mission 21 and the local partner organizations largely on their own. A success story. This was also made possible by contributions from our donors.
