Happy Craft Sri Lanka

Happy Craft Sri Lanka was created by Mayomi Gunarathna in 2013 after having previously worked for the Tsunami Task Force Disaster Management Committee. Mayomi employs women from her father’s village in Kurunegala. Originally finding only four ladies willing to work with her, only one of whom could crochet already, Mayomi proceeded with teaching the others. Visiting every two weeks, she now works with 12 ladies, teaching them new products and designs, and paying them per piece for production. The money earnt by these ladies contributes to their independence and assists them with any family issues that may arise.
