Handmade quilt by women in San Pedro Sula, Honduras
This beautiful quilt was handsewn by by Clivian. This quilt is called Water Bubbles and is a tiny scrap quilt or could even be a table square.
Clivian's dedication to supporting her three children as a single mother is truly commendable. At 26 years-old, she understands the challenges and responsibilities that come with raising children on her own. While it may be difficult, Clivian considers her boys to be the best thing that have ever happened to her, bringing immense joy and purpose to her life.
Her journey in education was cut short due to the unfortunate circumstances of her mother's passing, leading her to discontinue her schooling after the fourth grade. Nonetheless, Clivian harbors dreams for her sons to have better opportunities and access to education that she herself did not have growing up. Her oldest son's aspiration of becoming an architect is a testament to the dreams and ambitions that Clivian nurtures in her children.
Working from home through sewing provides Clivian with a vital source of income to support her family. This employment opportunity allows her to be present for her children while also earning a living. Additionally, Clivian's entrepreneurial spirit shines through her daily sale of tortillas, contributing further to her family's financial stability.
