Shop the Mothers Cooperative and Feed a Family.

The Fresh and Green Mothers Cooperative has been expanding and the quality of their items is top notch!

Eighty-one women in the neighborhood of Kotebe in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, have changed their lives by joining the Mothers Cooperative. The women not only create beautiful hand made items at Fresh and Green Academy’s onsite crafting area, help cook the meals for the children and help out at the school, but they have established true friendships and help each other through the tough times.

The women of the cooperative used to spend their days begging and prostituting themselves just to eat and feed their families, but now, thanks to your purchases and donations, they have hope for the future and have become empowered beyond belief.

The scarfs made by the women are available now through our Etsy page

Order before December 19th and have a beautiful scarf in time for Christmas!
