WAU, 31 May 2016 [Gurtong] – A range of creative products by women entrepreneurs will be displayed at an exhibition to be held on the 6th of June in Wau.

The exhibition organised by Women Advance Organisation will showcase creative products for everyday use. These include wallets, handbags, mats and table cloths among others.

Women Advance Organisation is an organisation in Wau with its regional office based in Juba. The organisation encourages women to be independent.

Rozana Angelo Atoroba, the Coordinator of the organization said that the initiative aims to support women in tackling challenges while pursuing their own business.

Most of the materials used by the women for their products are imported from neighbouring Uganda.

“We are going to hire a place where we shall be selling the products and on the sixth of June is when we shall hold the exhibition for the first products and sell most of the products and the remaining ones we will stock in a shop that we shall open.”

“On the exhibition day, we shall be displaying our products including nine handbags, thirty-one bags of bed sheets and many womens’ wallets. After we sell these goods, we will be able to get money and access our materials from Kampala,” she said.

Jusphine Ropi, who has now become a tutor, learned the skills in 2013 while in Kajo-Keji County. She says the business has helped her own assets as well as pay tuition fees for her children.

“The knitting helps women get busy during your leisure time and have no time for rumour mongering, you will be busy and have a peaceful mind making money. Especially me for example when I learned this in Kajo-Kkeji, I had interest and I could make bags and table cloths and get money which now I am using for paying my children at school.”

 Ropi says she wants to help provide women with skills to enable them become creative and compete in today’s changing business environment.

I will no more allow the negative things in life to demolish most of the immense things I have. I be playful. Allow consistent to be redirected. You simply require a heart stacked with tastefulness. A soul made by friendship. Everywhere on these post and sites are unimaginable and super stories. An obligation of appreciation is all together to share us. fast and furious Jacket

The biggest 'WOW' thing a guy has ever done for me was when my ex and I were still together. He was low on cash, and didn't want me to have to pay, so he went to Little Caesars and got a $5 pizza, then went to red-box and got a movie for a $1, picked me up from my house and we laid in the grass on a blanket with his laptop and watched the movie on it and ate pizza. Definitely a really awesome idea of Cheap Assignment Really inexpensive but its something that hopefully, a girl will remember.
