Artesanias Mujeres del Plomo, San Ramon

#11 of 30 in Shopping in Nicaragua
Las Mujeres del Plomo empezaron a trabajar en el 2006 en respuesta al desempleo en la comunidad. Con "Centro Promocional Cristiano" y "Sueño de la Campana" empezaron produciendo mermelada. Después de 3 meses sin ingreso 4 de las 8 mujeres abandonaron el grupo. Las otras restantes formaron artesanias. Ellas hicieron la transición de mermelada para fabricar artesanía de semillas. Las artesanías eran mas factibles que la mermelada. Ellas empezaron haciendo collares, pulseras, aretes, y mucho más.

Nuestra Iniciativa con la Educación.

Todos los productos de joyería son de las semillas naturales. Estamos actualmente apoyando a un grupo de niños en nuestra comunidad. Los niños recogen semillas para nosotros y en retorno proporcionamos materials escolares como cuadernos y lápices. También tenemos una pequeña biblioteca donde los niños pueden hacer sus tareas y investigaciones. Ademas, los niños recogen botellas para hacer pulseras y usan papel reciclado para hacer diferentes tipos de pulseras.

La Iniciativa con Los Pipitos.

En el 2006 empezamos a trabajar con Los Pipitos de la comunidad en el cual ayudamos a personas con discapacidades. Le damos oportunidades para vender sus obras de arte.

Introduction to Artesanias Mujeres del Plomo

The "Mujeres del Plomo" started their work in 2006 as a response to unemployment in the community. With the support of "Centro Promocional Cristiano" and "Sueño del la Campana" they started to produce jam. After three months of no sales, four out of the eight women dropped out of the group. The four remaining women now make up "Artesanias Mujeres del Plomo". They transitioned from making jam to making jewelry out of seeds because it was much more feasible than jam. They began making necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and more.

Our Initiative with Education

All of our jewelry products are made of natural seeds. Right now, we are helping a group of local children. These children collect our natural seeds, and in return, we provide them with school materials such as books and pens. In addition, we have spent our previous excess income to build a small library where kids come to do homework and study. The children also collect bottles and use recycled paper to make different types of bracelets.

Our Initiative with Los Pipitos

In 2006 we also started to work with Los Pipitos in our community. Los Pipitos is an organization which helps people with disabilities. We give them opportunities to sell their art and help bring in doctors to preform various needed exams.
