But Fati’s story is just one chapter in AtEG’s larger narrative of impact and empowerment. Thanks to the generous support of the PGAF grant, AtEG is expanding its reach to train 180 women in soap-making, braiding/plaiting, dying, milk processing, henna, and pottery.   Trainees will be residents of Faladie as well as the IDP camp in Zantiguila.  The camp is for those displaced by terrorists and made to live in a camp built over an active garbage dump.  The women involved will not only gain valuable skills but also improve living conditions for more than 1000 members of the community.

The PGAF would also like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to our sponsoring alum, James Bisbee, who spent 24 years at P&G in PSO in the U.S. James’s commitment to empowering women and communities is creating the ability to create lasting change. The PGAF is honored to support his work with Arts to End Genocide.

As we celebrate Fati, James, and all the extraordinary women of AtEG, let’s reaffirm our commitment to supporting women’s empowerment and creating a more inclusive and equitable world for all. Together, we can build a future where every woman has the opportunity to shine and succeed. 🌟
