Zimbabwe a center funded by the Danish government, which exported thousands of baskets a year. This craft center was meant to keep the traditional crafts alive: basket-making, drum-making, carving, pottery, and beading. The Tonga live in an area prone to drought and poverty, and the basket making helped the women feed their families.
