Using local designs, techniques and skills, the Lady Volta Batik project, initiated in February 2008, empowers young mothers living in Ho.
The volunteer will help by using artistic creativity to design new “high-end, luxury” fabrics. The batik cloth process is fun and easy to learn using wax stamps, dyes, and chemicals. Batik workshops are available here for understanding the process.
Volunteers interested in designing new products (must have basic sewing skills) can teach interactive product designing classes to the young women.
