Babes in Mali

Sidiki Ouattara, who is the director of the government agency on handicrafts in Mali and my contact for the project Charkhas for Africa, just sent this photo. He writes that the women are from Nonsombougou and that they are beneficiaries of our spinning wheel project. Mr. Ouattara reports that he will be going to Nonsombougou next week to deliver the third Babe spinning wheel.
