our workshop: the IDP camps

2008 We quickly outgrew the space of our market stall, which was about 10 x 10 feet. Lucy brought on more tailors as we grew, but we knew we'd need more than six women sewing to meet the growing demand for our products. We won the Davis Project for Peace, which enabled us to expand our work into Bobi and Unyama - two internally displaced persons camps (IDP camps) outside of Gulu. We spent three months in each camp, training 10 women at each site to sew One Mango Tree products.
