Yida Garments Koyonzo / youth empowerment

Yida Garments Koyonzo

Yida garment is a social business that supports vulnerable village based communities to empower themselves through skill training in tailoring and screen printing. Yida garment uses tailoring as a business and empowerment because of its simplicity and ease in knowledge transfer. We focus on local markets for both its clients and beneficiaries. Tailoring market in Koyonzo is faced with the challenge of high production costs due to lack of local factories and suppliers for textiles and relevant equipment. High level of unemployment which is compounded by high levels of semi-literacy and lack of employ-ability skills.
