Basseterre, St. Kitts, October 09, 2020 (SKNIS)
Yakima Daniel, Fashion Designer and Owner of Kiwie Dan, won a UN WOMEN bid to produce 500 cloth masks for vulnerable groups in St. Kitts and Nevis. The masks were officially handed over to Mrs. Celia Christopher, Director of Gender Affairs, at the Department of Gender Affairs in St. Kitts, on October 8, 2020.
Through the initiative, the UN WOMEN hopes to capture visibility on this initiative as it promotes its work on economic empowerment that is an integral part of its COVID-19 response around the region.“I applied for the bid and then the UN WOMEN contacted me about producing the masks and the specifications required. A few weeks later, UN WOMEN contacted me to tell me I would have won. I was shocked and surprised that I won it. As the communication flowed between us, everything got set up.
