In the capital city of Juba, 77 women representing 19 different South Sudan tribes are uniting in diversity, crafting a new nation in South Sudan, and forging a pathway of self-sufficiency for themselves and their extended families by participating in ROOTS Project of South Sudan. #socialentrepreneur #community #impact #donate #folkartalliance #opportunity #econdev #sustainability #education

Stung Treng Women's Development Centre (STWD), and its income-generating program, Mekong Blue, are positively changing hundreds of lives in rural north-east Cambodia through monumental sales of its traditional ikat silk weaving and kmer style textiles.
Chantha Nguon, founder of STWD, is breaking the cycle of poverty and illiteracy by empowering, educating, and employing women in her home community. In the Stung Treng province where STWD is located, socially and environmentally damaging activities like illegal fishing, drug trafficking, and human trafficking are prevalent in this region. To change this paradigm, Chantha is creating dignified livelihoods by producing and selling high-quality folk art and empowering women to affect positive social change for themselves and for their families. She is a champion social entrepreneur, and is an inspiration to us all.
IFAA honors these artists for their excellence in community impact through folk art and are finalists of the 2016 IFAA Community Impact Award. This artist cooperative and social enterprise embodies what IFAA celebrates.

Jennifer Day - Art Quilter added 8 new photos to the album: Branding at Day Ranch — in Vaughn, New Mexico.
Branding day at the ranch is a day of hard work. The United States government requires, by law in all 50 states, that all newborn calves be branded. This is a tradition that dates back to othe 1800's. Occasionally, a calf gets away as you can see in one of the pictures. The two cowboys were dragged as they tried to catch the cow! We branded 142 calves that day. My ranch manager, Amanda, gathered people from adjoining ranches to help. These cowboys and cowgirls will travel to another ranch each week to assist in brandings for no pay. This is tradition. I was in the pens with my camera, trying not to get run over by a fast horse! We will have 300 calves born this year in New Mexico. ... See MoreSee Less

Four years ago I took the picture of Judy in a small grocery store in Bend Oregon. I told her that I used my photographs in my art. She was very excited. I used her photograph in my quilt Judy for the exhibition Balancing Act. I tried to find her for permission to use her image in my book, but Ray’s Grocery was closed and she was lost. When I was at the quilt show in Houston last year I met Jan at the SAQA booth. She lives in Bend. She said she would try to find Judy. Success!!!! Judy now works at Walmart.
