Cool Water artisan Safia Malam

RAIN and ten  women of  Agadez, Niger,  have created a new cooperative Aman Sanodnan :  Cool Water.  From a tuareg proverb __ one walks in the hot desert searching for water, always disappointed. But you must go on — you are about to give up, when you come upon a well. And the water is cool and good.  At last your work is rewarded, you have come in from the hot sun and found the shade.  The women chose this name to signify that after much hard work with little reward they have found the cool water of RAIN.  Look for their beautiful leather crafts on sale soon at www.rain4sahara.org!
