The sewing classes we provide trains local women over the course of a three-month program, equipping them with vocational skills that can secure them employment at local textile companies. These women learn essential skills necessary to stitching garments such as salwar suits, churidar, blouses, and dresses.
- $1,000 covers the cost of materials and instruction for 40 women.
- After graduating the program, 30 of these women go on to earn $45 a month at their new jobs, collectively bringing in around $16,000 a year in salaries, 90% of which they reinvest in their communities.
- These classes turn an initial $1,000 investment into $16,000, boosting the local economy.
