Here’s something extraordinarily cool: Outreach community members in Africa have been busy mask-making en masse. They’re keeping themselves and their neighbors safe (and stylish!) while bolstering their own experience and commitment to one another in the process.

We’re so amazed by their great work that we’ve done our best to recreate it for you. Below, you’ll find this handy (and stylish!) step-by-step chart. Scroll down to see some heartwarming (and face-protecting) snapshots of our community partners in action! 

Just one look at the masterful crafting of these amazing women will have you as awed as we are. They’re truly helping themselves and protecting others with supplies and equipment they resourced themselves.
