My field placement is at the Center for New North Carolinians in Greensboro, NC. It’s been a pleasure being engaged there since the summer because I have been able to see the development and success of several projects. One project in particular has caught my attention because of the impact it is having on the lives of numerous refugee women and their families. “Crafty Conversations” began as an opportunity for refugee and immigrant women to learn handicrafts while developing relationships and practicing English. It has grown into a way to empower themselves to use handicraft skills as a way to engage the American business model and contribute to the financial stability of their families. After much dedicated labor, handicrafts were submitted to four sale events in November at First Presbyterian Church, the Greensboro Children’s Museum, Ten Thousand Villages, and the Westover Church Home. Roughly seventy percent of the revenue goes back to these women and at Ten Thousand Villages they turned a profit of $2,000 overall. The women were amazed and overwhelmed because of what they had been able to accomplish.
