The women who work to make the Timbali bags also volunteer at Care Points, where local children can come to receive a nutritious meal. Timbali Crafts helps the women in their sewing program to purchase their own sewing machines through no-interest loans and also provides them with the opportunity to participate in a matching savings program.
