Handmade Congolese Crafts

Global Ministries is excited to share the opportunity to receive beautiful, handmade crafts from the Congo, while supporting women and families through microcredit programs around the world. Each item is uniquely created and sewn by a woman in the Congo using vibrant Congolese fabric.

Through the microcredit program of the Community of the Disciples of Christ in the Congo, these handmade items are an opportunity for women to earn an income and provide for their families. In addition to receiving a special item made by Congolese artisans, the proceeds received through your order will support many women, children, and families through microcredit initiatives of Global Ministries partners.
