Words from Asabea:

"My name is Asabea Atekiya and I am from Ghana. I am widowed with 4 children. I have an 11 year old daughter named Sarah Atekiya, a 16 year old daughter named Ayinpoka Atekiya, a 21 year old son named Ayine Atekiya, and a 25 year old daughter named Assibi Atekiya. I have used my prosperity wages to pay school fees of my children and renew health insurance of the family members to access health care as I am now a single mother with the passing on of my husband five years ago. I have also used my wages to buy 5 bags of fertilizer to apply on my crops. The changes I have seen in the community and in myself because of Tenbythree are that now I have food to feed the family and also I have increased the land I have being farming on as I can now afford the farm inputs like fertilizer and other mechanics. Thank you very much for doing a lot in my life. You buy my baskets and now I have hope for the future of the children education. God bless you and every one.

Asabea Atekiya: July 2020

 

I have used my prosperity wages to pay my children school fees and renew national health insurance of the family to access free health care. I have also used my prosperity wages to buy twenty bags of cement and started molding of blocks to be used for building project in the family.  The changes I have seen in the community and in myself because of Blessing Basket Project are that now I am able to buy educational needs of the family especially for the children education.  Thank you very much for doing a lot in my life. You buy my baskets and now I have food to feed the family and also make the family healthier through the money I got from weaving for Blessing Basket Project."

Hand-woven Large Orange Striped Basket from Ghana

$60.00Price
  • "Our products from Ghana are woven from elephant grass, a completely sustainable material grown in the country.  The dyes are primarily plant dyes such as sorghum.  By twisting the grass, these baskets are extremely strong.  The handles are made of straw and wrapped with goat leather.  The average time to weave a basket is about two and a half days.  These are handcrafted items so sizes are approximate and colors and patterns will vary."  - Tenbythree.org
