Description of Service
Worked with the UNDP & ILO on a project with local woodcarvers in the Vakpo area (Volta Region).We helped them work together in a cooperative environment, gathered them together under five different work sheds. They had previously been competeing against each other.We showed them how to cost their items, work on quality control. Provided them with new tools for carving, and helped negotiate quality standard and pricing with the local tourist vendors. Our group of Peace Corps Volunteers were the very first group of "Small Enterprise Development" volunteers that Peace Corps had.
