After training 17 new matrones we gave them certificates for having completed the program.
Then we set out the jewelry kits generously donated by Toolbox initiative and called the selected 15 jewelers.
The Tuareg jewelers of Iferouane have been my choice of jewelers to work with for many years to supply Nomad Gallery because they are among the best and are so isolated they have little opportunity to sell their jewelry.
Aghali is their spokesman and organized all of our activities in Iferouane. I happily gave him one of the kits–how he has time to make the beautiful jewelry he does I’ll never know.
The mayor of Iferouane helped us distribute the kits.
And then they threw us a party
We all got dressed up in special Iferouane embroidery
