Mariam Medheb has been with the association for twenty-five years. “By now, these handcrafts are the only things that I can do,” she said. “I have five girls whose father died, and because I don’t have a boy, there’s no one to help me support them,” she added. Although her older daughter is in her early twenties, Medhab does not want her to work. “I struggled a lot, so I don’t want them to work.”
