Named after 2 Mile, the most notorious squatter settlement in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea (PNG). Project Two Mile is an initiative with the singular purpose of economically and purposefully supporting the lives of marginalised women by providing a global platform for their artwork and crafts. Project Two Mile supports female weavers with the opportunity to find economic independence through their traditional craft. Aiming to not only uplift the women and their families' lives but to keep the ancient technique of Bilum weaving alive.

Starting in 2020 with small steps but big dreams, PNG native Maggie T Kera began selling Bilum bags made by a handful of weavers from the 2 Mile settlement online. She works tirelessly, liaising between clients, customers, and weavers, to ensure that the highest level of craftsmanship is maintained. Maggie now supports over 100 weavers, paying them a premium for their work so that her dream of a sustainable future for all involved in the project can be achieved. Project Two Mile is currently raising funds for a ‘creative space’ that will provide a safe space for weavers and their families who are experiencing domestic violence.
