Born in 1997, Fouzia is one of the youngest members of the Talsint Handicraft Association. Fouzia studied until fifth grade when her parents pulled her out of school to help at home. She learned the craft of basket making and weaving at home from her mother. This is Fouzia’s first time being part of an association, with the money from her basket sales she has purchased a tablet and new clothes. Fouzia hopes to further develop her creative capabilities as a way to generate a secure income and to help continue the tradition of craft in her region. A dream of Fouzia’s is to someday finish her studies.
