FRIENDS OF FISH PROJECT
Handcrafted with love & passion in Madagascar.
#FRIENDSOFFISHPROJECT is a non profit business charity project founded in 2018 and supported by i saved the fish. This project aims to help people in Madagascar to earn a living from their passions, take care of their families and sending their children to school and have a regular consultation of health.
- Why this project is important -
Madagascar is one of the poorest country in the world. It is hard to earn a living from their passions.
In the country, the hand crafted embroidery is very common. Since their very young age, many women acquire the technics to help family into business. But the fact is that this profession is very competitive in the market. Many retailers and buyers take advantage of this competition to reduce the price t minimum.
To be an artisan is not considered as a know-how job anymore. It became very hard to exercise this profession with passion.
Everyday starts with several jobs in the same time and they deal with the incredible struggle of trying to provide families needs.
