The Crochet Community Collective (CCC)

CCC is a sustainable development initiative dedicated to restoring community & identity through a treasured Syrian tradition: crochet. CCC has brought together 50 (and counting) Syrian and Lebanese women to foster friendship, empowerment, and self-reliance through crochet as a creative outlet. The artists are paid for every item they make, and the remaining profits directly support our 3,000 students at MAPs’ primary schools. Get involved today!

Let’s Crochet a School!

MAPs is partnered with the Norwegian researcher and clinical psychologist, Dr. Solfrid Raknes in the #Lets_Crochet_a_School project. Dr. Raknes has committed to facilitate sales of 15,500 crochet figurines in Norway. This amount is equivalent to the funding required to support MAPs’ Saadanyal Teaching Center where 300 children get one year of education!

 

In Norway, Raknes collaborates with Solidaritetsnøster, Women´s International League for Peace and Freedom Bergen, and Heimstadkjær  as part of #Lets_Crochet_a_School. If you are interested in contributing to the project in Norway, do not hesitate to contact solraknes@gmail.com
