AA woman weaving using dried water hyacinths at a project that makes household products from the plant. Water hyacinth is highly invasive and if left unchecked can choke lakes and starve the water of oxygen resulting in the death of fish and other water life. Furthermore, it acts as a breeding ground for disease carriers such as mosquitos and water snails. So using the plant for household items not only teaches women skills and offers them an income, but it also provides an imputus for clearing the water hyacinth.
