Handmade Goods That Help African Refugees: Amani Chattanooga Distributes Fair-Trade Items

Women affected by war and other hardships in Africa create handmade goods as part of Amani Ya Juu’s economic development program.  Amani is an international, fair-trade network with five locations in Africa, as well as one in Washington, D.C. and a distribution center in Chattanooga.

Amani will host a holiday sale/open house December 5th through the 7th .  The public is invited to visit the Chattanooga location.  Handmade goods such as clothing, kitchen items, purses and Christmas ornaments will be for sale, and customers can get a 25% discount on one item of their choice.  The center will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day during the sale.

Amani Chattanooga is located at 420 South Willow Street.
