In Zimbabwe’s arid Lupane District, frequent drought and food scarcity often make it difficult for local families to meet their basic needs. Looking for a steady source of income, a group of women banded together in 1997, a group of women came together to weave intricate baskets and make other crafts using resources from their local forests. The collective became the Lupane Women’s Center, which now supports thousands of members to sell their products overseas while making steady, climate-secure wages. Photo credit: Busani Bafana/IPS
