After the typhoon Vamco had gone I visited women

weaving in Dong Giang again.

I received all sample sewn products on the day.

U Café has crossed a small mountain I think.

Our project plans to hold an exhibition with their products.

It’ll take patience to do it, but U Café will walk with them

for their smiles.


We will update you for more activities and further development.

Have a good weekend!

is very nice. But some problems are still remaining. It’s difficult

for them to coop with the new design.

However when we sell their products in Japan, we have to be

Wait a while please!

Yesterday, I & one of U Café staffs visited weaving groups

in 2 prefectures.

We’re welcomed and chatted pleasantly with both groups

Then we observed the tree planting activity of Malteser International.


I’m profoundly grateful for all concerned.
