    New Beginnings for the Material and the Makers

    A designer reaches out to refugee women to help fabricate a line of recycled rubber bags. A local job centre helps to begin and evolve the initiative into a micro-social enterprise called the Begin Again Group (BAG) representing new beginnings for the material and the makers. The refugee women learn design, fabrication, business, language and social skills that help immerse them into their new surroundings and Canadian culture. The designer is Carolyn Butts of Bon Eco Design. The job centre is Kingston Employment and Youth Servies (KEYS). The Bag Project provides the funding to develop other products and services the women dream of doing in their new country.
