Training in SewingTraining in Sewing

Here single mothers can learn how to sew and thus how to produce clothes. At the moment, one of the strengths of this workshop is the manufacturing of sport uniforms. They enjoy a great reputation, thanks to the good quality, the low prices we ask for them and the fact that through buying them, the jobs for otherwise single unemployed mothers are protected. The center currently consists of 30 women, whereby 2 are deaf-dumb.

This workshop presents around 35 new women three times a year, amounting up to more than a 100 members in a complete year. Through doing this in snatches, we have the chance to be a fundamental pillar for this and future generations in this rmote area. Many women continue as employees in small handicraft companies and some even become micro managers.
