Margaret's Story

Aba House is a wonderful place to visit. When I got here I thought I would only do puppet making, but I got it all wrong because I had the opportunity to participate in other workshops like basket making, tie dye, paper making and bookbinding.

Aba House is doing a great job bringing people from around the globe to teach the local people... the knowledge got from the workshops would definitely be passed on and they could also make a living out of it, therefore, changing the society for the better.
