The factory shell is a symbol of economic recovery and the resilience of this community. AFSC worked through local partners to provide vocational training and start up kits. To further enhance sustainability, the community members have been organized into saving groups to ensure they have access to funds on rainy days. Representatives from other nonprofits, faith communities, and government ministries participated in the planning process and helped move the project forward. And supporters in the United States provided financial resources to bring the vision to life.
