Tissues that empower disadvantaged women
Chantal Donvidé is the founder of the Togolese clothes brand Aklala, batik du Togo. She has created a formation center in Kpalimé, Togo, for women who have been violated or abandoned by their families. Since the opening of the centre more than 400 women have learned batik, a traditional technique of wax-resist dyeing applied to clothes.
