Quilts for Empowerment
We learned about Quilts for Empowerment from designer Lori DeJarnatt of Humble Quilts. Lori wrote a blog post about this amazing organization in July: humblequilts.blogspot. com/2019/07/quilts-forempowerment.html.
The mission of Quilts for Empowerment is to teach quilting to impoverished women in Kenya, including obstetric fistula survivors, and to support young sexual assault survivors.

The program is based on the principle of respecting the dignity and inherent worth of all participants and team members.
