Fair for design and applied arts Meesterlijk
Penduka at Meesterlijk Amsterdam was a great success. Everyone who helped in any way whatsoever: Thank you very much! The visitors were very enthusiastic. Especially 'our story your story' with the embroidered items such as pictures of the family garment were very popular. Five stores and two online shops have indicated to include Penduka in their product range. The weekly and monthly magazines Libelle and Happinez intend to put Penduka in the spotlight next year.back to top

Emily is going to Namibia
After almost more than two year its finally time to head back to Namibia. Coming wednesday I will arrive in Windhoek to embrace Martha and all my dear friends at Penduka.
My history with Penduka begins in 2002. I was one of the first student nurses who started the TB-program. And now its almost ten years later and I'm still in contact with the women. Therefor I'm really looking forward to seeing and catching up with all the women at Penduka.back to top
