The grant will be used to develop and expand a pilot project offering women the chance to gain experience working in a commercial environment selling their own ceramic products. The grant will enable them to purchase a front loading kiln and temperature controller to enable the women to produce a larger volume of ceramics at the stall. The grant also includes kiln furniture and spray set. The aim is to initiate the project as a small social enterprise providing opportunities for women to gain work experience in the range of activities required to run a small business.
