A volunteer from Kingfisher Trust, Deryn Fox, along with Mustapha Touray, an experienced craftsman in the art of tie and dye, have been working rogether with groups of women in Pirang and Manduar to teach this traditional art.

The first group in Pirang were trained in November and very quickly learned the skill of designing patterns, tying the cloth and being creative with the dyeing techniques.

The women were taught basic business skills, and working together as a group, were introduced to the Gambian Women's Finance Association. The group were able to save and borrow additional funds to expand their business. These women are now successfully generating income from their work.

The second group in Manduar have only just completed their training and are enthusiastically producing bedsheets, table cloths and napkins, and other small items for selling.

Kingfisher Trust aim to assist women in many other villages to gain similar skills.
