This is the VOA Special English Development Report. 这里是美国之音特别英语之发展报道

Every three weeks, a truck drives to a rural community in the Kingdom of Swaziland.

The purpose of the trip is to buy the hand-made products of local women and place new orders.

到这里来的目的就是要购买当地妇女手工制作的产品并且给他们新的订单。

The Swazi women make and sell woven baskets, placemats for dinner tables and other objects for the home. The women gained their weaving skills long ago. Traditionally, women in the African nation work with long grasses to make the thatched roofs that cover houses.

斯威士兰的妇女们编织篮子,餐桌上的垫子及其他一些家用品并卖出去。 这些妇女在很久以前就具备编织技术。据传统,非洲妇女用长长的草编织屋顶,来盖住房屋。

The manufacture of goods is important for the women because they can do this at home. 这些手工制品对这里的妇女来说是很重要,因为他们可以在家里完成。

Many care for a number of children, including those whose parents died of AIDS.

这里的很多的孩子都得到很好的照顾,包括他们的父母死于艾滋病。

Swaziland is said to have the highest known rate of infection for the virus that causes the disease.

据说斯威士兰的艾滋病毒传染率是最高的,这一点众所周知。

But life is brighter for the women weavers today than it was seventeen years ago.

但现在女编织工的生活相比于 17 年前要好过多了。

That is when a business project called Gone Rural was launched.

这主要归功于一个叫“去乡村”的商业项目的发起。

Today, more than seven hundred women take their goods to Gone Rural for sale.

现今,近七百多妇女把他们自己制作的产品拿到“去乡村”销售。

One of their main materials is Lutindzi grass, which grows only in mountain areas.

这些产品中主要的材料是 Lutindzi 草,它只生长在高山地区。

Gone Rural also has some products available in other materials.

“去乡村”还销售用其他材料制作的产品。

The project now has sales of five hundred thousand dollars worth of goods each year.

 这个项目目前每年要销售价值近五十万的商品。

The goods are sold in more than thirty countries around the world.

这些商品在全球三十多个国家均有销售。

Three years ago, Gone Rural started a nonprofit organization called Gone Rural boMake.

 三年前,“去乡村”的前身是一个名为 Gone Rural boMake 的组织。

Its purpose is to provide for the educational, health and social needs of the women and their communities.

 该组织的目的是为妇女和本团提供教育,健康及社会方面的需要。

The parent organization gives Gone Rural boMake at least twenty percent of its profits and helps with administrative costs.

母组织分给 Gone Rural boMake 至少它利益的百分之二十并且付行政开支。

The non-profit organization's projects include working to provide communities with clean drinking water.

该非盈利组织的工作包括为社区提供干净的饮用水。

Lomtandaso Hlope was one of the first seven hundred women to weave for Gone Rural. Lomtandaso Hlope

是起初为“去乡村”编织的七百名编织工之一。

Years ago, she and other women from her community went to the Gone Rural office in the town of Malkerns.

几年前,她和自己社区的一些妇女来到 Malkerns 镇的 Gone Rural 办公室。

They showed their goods to Jenny Thorne, who established Gone Rural. Miz Thorne happily accepted what they made.

他们把自己的产品展示给 Jenny Thorne—Gone Rural 的创建者。 Jenny Thorne 女士非常高兴的接受了他们的产品。

Lomtandaso Hlope and her friends have been selling to Gone Rural ever since.

从那以后, Lomtandaso Hlope 和她的朋友开始向 Gone Rural 销售他们的产品。

Their community is among thirteen that sell to the group. She has educated her own children and grandchildren with the money earned from her work.

 他们的社区是十三个向 Gone Rural 销售产品的社区之一。 Lomtandaso Hlope 开始用她在社区赚的钱来让她的子孙接受教育。
