Kuchinate – African Refugee Women's Collective
Kuchinate is a psychosocial project focused on refugees, intent on securing rights for the most vulnerable asylum-seeking women. The collective helps women earn a fair wage with their arts and crafts work and interact with the public by way of artistic collaborations and social inclusion.
Women at Kuchinate tell their stories with their handcrafted art. This helps them regain their voice, lost in the trauma they experienced.
They believe that the art of handcraft have a power to change people's lives for better.
