We call ourselves the Dream Team of Anapla – a team of women who were given a dream of bringing themselves and their families out of the circle of poverty through the art of embroidery.

My mother, who retired to the Philippines after a career in NYC, started this cooperative once she saw the need for an industry in the island she lives in – especially for the women who have lived on the margins of society for so long. This is a life line, a hope, and a source for dreams that may have never been realized before.
