Books for library
At Women of Banglatown we are working on building a social justice library for young girls and teens. Together we can inspire future leaders by educating them on unique narratives — by writers of color and/or authors who can speak about social issues through their own experiences.
We can never get enough of art supplies. We are in need of a new sewing machine, cotton yarn and organic cotton fabric. We also love markers, paper and embroidery string.
Drop off items at our location: 11500 Joseph Campau St. Hamtramck, Michigan
BEcome a SponsoR
Sponsor healthy snacks for girls who participate in weekly programming. If you are a local company, a mother or a neighbor who's wants to lend a helping hand by sponsoring one meal or many we'd love to hear from you.
Transportation is one of our biggest obstacles. As we have recently expanded our outreach there are girls attending from over 5 different schools in Hamtramck/Detroit. We are always looking for volunteers or a transportation sponsor to help transport girls to and from Women of Banglatown. Have an idea, what to volunteer or make a contribution, send us an email.
Skill Training Day
Help sponsor a skill training day for local immigrant women to learn new skills around traditional textiles and weaving. We offer income generating activities to women who live in Hamtramck/Detroit. The more skills they learn, the more products Women of Banglatown can create, which will allow us to hire more women. Together we can begin to see how job skill training is an alternative to a college degree and can contribute to supporting a families income.
We are working on our new online store. Stop by our little store located inside of the Woodward Throwbacks showroom, 11500 Joseph Campau St. Hamtramck, Michigan.
We'd love to hear from you.
