Turning a passion into a livelihood project

From childhood I loved to crochet and knit, make dresses for my dollies, and when I turned adult, I made clothes for myself and others.
In my late 20-ies I became a volunteer for a Christian organization and had little or no time for handicrafts, putting my passion aside in order to pursue my calling. For many years on different mission fields I never touched crochet or knitting work until recently.
Coming to Bohol in the Philippines, the door opened for me to use my passion again. Since almost 2 years I have been teaching crochet work in a livelihood project to mothers of the children we teach in our school. I've been given the opportunity to turn what I love into an activity that helps others earn some money to pay their bills. You can see some of the work we do on our blog
