“The world will change when our girls and our women are educated.” -Maggie Doyne
Right now Monkstone Knitwear is out in Nepal.
The adventure started from a friendship between Maggie Doyne and I formed at the Do Lectures many years ago.
After staying in touch, it was the right time for me to head out to Maggie and her family based at Kopila Valley in Surkhet.
The Kopila Valley Women’s Center started in 2013. You can read all about it here.
Our mission - we want these women to own and believe in themselves, to empower them to do. To feel complete in all aspects of life.
After the flood that hit a few weeks backs, the time is more right than ever for this incredible team of 20 women to open their shop doors and cloth the town and children. Here’s to the start of this adventure.
Let’s get the studio open, let’s teach, let’s share and let’s empower.
Amazing things happen when women come together and support each other.
I would love you all to meet these incredible women. Here’s to the start of an adventure. We have a shop to open and a work room to get making in. Every lady here has a story and I hope to share them all with you. #make #share #empower
