Women Tailors Community / Women Empowerment & Employment

Women who are in need of job opportunities are upskilled and given sewing training in order to earn a side income. With the capability to earn, they are now able to put food on the table. Single mothers and underprivileged women are given the necessary skills to make and sew corporate gifts. While the sustainability of this project is through the sales of these handmade products by collaborative companies. This project does not only solve a poverty issue; however, women that has been suppressed or treated with no importance can now feel empowered and have a sense of belonging and fulfilment as they no longer have to rely on others.
