The beauty of lavender empowerment

by Administrator, Author

They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder. This axiom holds true most of the times, except when one looks at the lavender fields in the #Chirpan region of Bulgaria where we are launching one of our projects. The breathtaking views and magic aroma inspire us even more to press on with our mission to awaken the strength of women and youth in rural marginalized communities so that they are able to live a life with dignity, abundance and pride.

Our lavender girls from the Chirpan region were busy with the harvest this last weekend. With smiles on their faces, they collected and delivered some lavender to our Roma entrepreneurs in Brestnitsa who then sorted it and are drying it in their newly built facility. Next phase is the training and production of the first Saksham products.
