Vote for Neema Crafts!
Greenbelt Associates CMS have been working with Neema Crafts in Tanzania, a group started by Susie Hart, a British person with a disability, who worked with the Tanzanian Diocese of Ruaha to train people with disabilities in crafts, and run a popular cafe.
Greenbelters who were at the Festival in 2008 will remember a team of people from Neema Crafts, based in the CMS tent, who demonstrated their abilities to make paper from elephant dung.
Neema Crafts have now been nominated in the Telegraph Expat Best Of British Awards, for best British-run establishments overseas. We'd like to encourage Greenbelters to visit the Neema Crafts page and vote for them!
A win would give them great publicity, as well as networking opportunities to help in fundraising for their physiotherapy unit for disabled children. It would also give them a platform from which to highlight world-wide the issues of childhood disability and deafness in Africa.
