Salaula Saturday!






I know I've written a little before about "salaula." When American's give their used clothes to companies like Goodwill or The Arc (Value Village) they can end up being sold all the way in Zambia. So, we decided to give a salaula sale a try as a potential "income-generating project" for Ciyanjano and as a little fun for the community. It costs people 10-20 thousand Kwacha to travel into Lusaka to do some shopping... we figured maybe they'd like to spend that money on trousers and t-shirts instead on mini-bus fare!

Nice! A lot of those clothes end up in El Salvador too! It's a huge business here reselling them.
