Sharon and friend baking in their Aprons for Action!

Aprons for Action! is an international non-profit that provides scholarships for academically talented, yet economically marginalized girls in Còte d’Ivoire, West Africa. The girls who attend school through the Grace Scholarship Program could not go to high school without financial help. The organization helps prepare its students for college as well.
Ann Arbor native, Susan Frazier Kouassi once lived in Còte d’Ivoire. While there, she banded together with 8 Ivoirian women to create the program in 2002. Today, in addition to her full-time work, Susan raises educational funds by sewing one-of-a-kind, reversible cotton aprons, as well as place mats and pot holders, from West African fabric.
