I want to start an NGO.
My idea is to have an online website for people to order handknit items that they can choose themselves from their favourite knitting magazine or book, and have it done by women in remote villages in a developing country.
The women would have to come from a culture that knits as part of its tradition, such as Peru, or some other such country.
The yarn would be purchased in the buyer's country of origin, and sent to a representative who would then help the women get the pattern translated, etc.
I had this idea because knitting is very trendy, and hand knit garments are very, very expensive. Someone in France charges 200 Euros for a scarf!!! but they are knit in France so that explains that.
What I need is your help in helping me get some information so I can write up a proposal to get this crowd funded.
