Livelihoods project in indigenous Zenu communities

Today, we have launched a new livelihoods project in two indigenous Zenu communities within Sucre: La Isla, Sampues and Pueblecito, Palmito.

With resources donated by the Coventry and Nuneaton Circuit of the British Methodist Church, six industrial sewing machines have been purchased, together with sufficient material to produce the first 50 handbags and 50 hats. Today began the process of setup and calibration of the machines, and an induction was provided by the technician to the two communities.

An opening prayer service on 24 April included scriptures read in Arabic, Spanish and English and French; music combined the soft chants of Taizé and tradition Latin sounds of pan pipes, percussion and guitar.
