Malambo Women's Group of Zambia:
the year 2000 Camel Productions has been supporting the efforts
of the Malambo Women's Group of Zambia.
Malambo women are a rural group of Tonga women who banded together
1991 to create a unique income generation project in response
to the 1991/1992 Southern African drought.
some assistance, these rural Tonga women created fabric products
such as table clothes, bedspreads, table mats, etc which depict
thier lives and stories, and the people and animals of Zambia.
They now sell them locally and in Canada.
