Wala Kafiree

Embroidery Artisan, Alsama Studio

Earning my own money makes me feel proud.

Wala is from Ghouta in Syria. She has five children.  She began training  as an embroidery artisan six years ago after fleeing to Lebanon. Back in Syria she would not have been able to work. This was simply not the custome in her village. Now she feels proud to earn her own money . Wala dreams of travelling with her family to a safer place where her children will be able to go to school and eventually attend university.
