Sewing Machine Project 

As in most developing countries, women often experience greater poverty than men. This is due to high unemployment among women, a culture of undervaluing women, and gender segregation.

Our goal is to empower women with skills that can enable them to come out of poverty. We have established two sewing training centres to help single mothers and widows learn the skills necessary to help them integrate into the textile industry.

 

To date, we have had to successful training programs, the first saw  45 women graduate and are now taking up contracts to make dresses, uniforms for schools and other textile projects in Kampala. The second has had over 100 women take the program, of that some are employed on their own and others have grouped together to form a business.

This has resulted in training programs which has empowered women with the skills and confidence they need to earn a living to support themselves and their families.

( Please note: Our past training programs  have proven successful to participants to become employed although  currently this program is on hold we are looking forward to a time when donations are sufficient to start another success story).
