In the midst of celebrations and festivities organized for International Artisan´s Day, authorities from the Puno region recognize the support and impetus given by Movimiento Manuela Ramos to artisan production in the region.
“United artisans knit development in the Puno region by contributing to artisan production” is how Manuela Ramos distinguished itself in the event organized by the project Artesanía, executed by the Regional Office of Foreign Trade and Tourism in Puno.
This recognition is dedicated to all Manuelas who, through their knitting, express an art form they have learned and perfected with dedication and hard work, and which today provides them with a source of income.
In addition to this public recognition, the Manuelas participated in the parade that brought together the main artisan organisations operating in the Puno region. Later, in the main square, they met with the president of the Regional Government, Mauricio Rodriguez, the Director of DIRCETUR, Manuela Quinones, as well as with other authorities and artisan leaders.
