Helps the unemployed.
Sweeter: “We want everything we do to have meaning. That’s why we have employed women who have trouble finding jobs or a side income despite their life and professional experience. These are women nearing retirement who have lost their jobs, “have no perspectives” and therefore cannot find new employment.” In their hands knitted children’s sweaters, hats, dresses and pillow covers are created.
