Empowering women through job-skills training

Tailoring Schools
The Need

There are few jobs available to women in India other than hard manual-labor, and even fewer that offer them a stable income. Many women are never trained in well-paying jobs, or else they cannot afford the necessary equipment and supplies to work from home.

Our Solution

At our tailoring schools, women are taught how to use a sewing machine, how to cut fabric, and how to assemble clothing. By learning these job skills, the women are qualified for better-paying jobs in the garment industry and are able to earn a higher income for their families. Upon graduating, they also have the opportunity to receive their own sewing machine from us so that they can work from home.

Our Goal

Our goal is to provide women with the supplies, skills, and confidence to work in the garment industry. More specifically, we would like to be able to host tailoring schools in all 150+ of our service centers.

Our Cost

It costs $100 to buy one sewing machine, plus an additional sum to buy cloth and materials for the students, and salaries for the teachers.
