We funded this committed, women led project in a very remote and impoverished area so that they could expand their tailoring training. Our grant allowed them to purchase an embroidery machine, straight stitch sewing machine, zigzag machine and knitting machine, enabling them to start training local young women to make school uniforms and other clothing. This creates much needed jobs in Mubunda.
In 2020 they reported that their grant had allowed them to more than double their income, and help the women better support their families. This improved the health and welfare of their children.
