The Women's Empowerment badge is awarded to female artisans or artisan groups that are led by women.
Growing up, Jaifah was surrounded with Thai antiques and artisan designs that her parents collected and made. From her mother and other artisans, she learned the traditional techniques that she uses to produce the high-quality wood and metal designs her workshop is known for. She has taught these techniques to many of the artisans that work with her. She hopes that someday her children will want to continue this work but, so far, they have shown little interest in pursuing it.
Jaifah and her husband are actively involved in their children's education. They encourage not only their studies but all of the extracurricular activities that interest them.
Jaifah provides for her children the same sort of loving family environment that she grew up in.
Jaifah is able to provide jobs for other artisans in her workshop.
