Look at these baskets! Our global mom, Yasuko, made them by hand. Aren’t they lovely?
When Yasuko visited Asian and African countries, she saw women making baskets. She saw a wide variety of baskets made from plant material. Observing women weaving or crocheting baskets, she felt how strenuous it was to make a basket. As she had wanted to experience this strenuous work, she crocheted these baskets. As a women’s empowerment specialist, she believes that having a hands-on experience is important, rather than just advocating the significance of women’s empowerment. As she completed the two baskets in a few days, she has a stiff neck and shoulders now. ‘Beary’ nice hands-on experience! Mom, are you going to put some sweets in the baskets for me? Ha, ha, ha!
