There are many worthwhile projects and small businesses in Africa and they are sprouting up all the time. Without trying to become a large multi-national corporation and to take over the world these businesses supply jobs to local communities and provide sources of income for local residents.
As part of our Zambia-Malawi tour we got to visit a small business that markets beautiful textiles. We got to witness the entire process from the stenciling or drawing of the fabric, the mixing of the colors, the painting, the drying, and the sewing and finishing of the products which include beautiful table cloths, napkins and placemats.
Next time you are in the area pick some up!
