DUHAMABI Vulnerable Girls Sewing Group, Kigoma

Amount of grant approved (£) : 1,020Year of grant : 2020

We supported this organisation with sewing machines so that they could train girls. The training continues. When I visited in February the class was well organised. 40 girls have ‘graduated’ so far. This request is to give the ‘graduates’ access to sewing machines so that they can use their new skills to earn money by making clothes, especially school uniforms. DUHAMABI will meet the cost of renting a room. I spoke to the girls. None has a machine at home. They all said they could fund their own materials. A grant was given for the purchase of 10 sewing machines and 10 chairs.
