Fabric of Life

Have you heard about Carol? I don't know much about her yet but I do know this - she is dedicated to the girls of Mali, Africa and the school her Foundation runs. Fabric of Life (a dba of Schillios Develoment Foundation) is dedicated to cooperative partnerships that improve people's access to affordable credit, education and health care. (I took that right off the website...)

Fabric of Life's Hèrè jè project assists Mali girls who are otherwise left begging in the streets for money with life skills - skills training, health and nutrition, AIDS education, etc.

Carol has been living on the roof of her store since August 23rd. Her goal is to raise $1 million for the Hèrè jè Center. If you feel led, don't hesitate to help! After watching her story on King 5, she strikes me as someone who is incredibly grateful to those who do.

Her living on the roof: Up on the roof with Carol

Actually, Carol moved to the roof on August 1st, 2009. I don't know how many hours of the day she spends 'up on the roof' ... but I do know it's a lot and she gets to sleep there ... no small challenge on any given night!

There are many girls and women locally, nationally and globally who live in conditions of poverty and homelessness, with little to no skills for improving their circumstances. Speak up and reach out as you choose to help change this. We are better together and can build stronger, sustainable communities for everyone.

Thanks for stopping by. I just love Washington. Stop by her shop,the lady there is the sweetest person. I am looking for her card. Not sure of the name of her shop right off. But not many have a goat and cart in the window. Are you from Port Angeles?
