VHW Women's Cooperatives

Thanks to the support of the US Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration, VHW developed our Women’s Cooperatives to provide employment, training and social support to local women, including gender-based violence survivors.

Currently employing about 45 women, the co-ops are comprised of sewing, weaving, soap-making and baking groups. All profits made go directly back to the women of the co-ops and to support the sustainability of this valuable program.



To help support, you can purchase goods made by the cooperatives here:
