Madalene, originally from Burundi was in Nyaragusu Refugee Camp in Tanzania for 17 years before resettling in the USA. Madalene is a master knitter. She loves making hat, scarves and her blankets are some of our customers favorites. Each one of her products are as unique as she. She did not have an opportunity for a formal education and her English skills are coming along. It doesn't matter, she can sell using her humor and people skills. We love Madalene!
