We would like to introduce our group of Filipino crocheters in the Philippines. We are very active and we now have 5,700 crochet artists from every part of the Archipelago and some countries around the world.
The idea behind Gantsilyo Filipino is to equip underprivileged young mothers living in rural areas with crochet skills and know-how so that they would be able to augment their family income, and thus help in alleviating poverty from their households.We started small. We taught mothers of schoolchildren while waiting for their kids to finish school. We taught anyone who would like to learn. Later on, we started to visit impoverished areas and teach young mothers how to crochet while caring for their kids and waiting for their husbands to come home.

Gantsilyo Filipino is mostly comprised by stay-at-home mothers and working moms dedicating some of their time to teach others to crochet. They themselves found solace in crochet, most of them crochet for a living. They want to pay it forward and teach the joys of crochet and how crochet could help poor families put food on their table. Most of the times they even fish money out of their own pockets to buy materials and food for their students.
Our members work hard to uplift the economy of the nation in their own small way. We would like to request a little bit of help from you so that these generous ladies could also enjoy being pampered.
