Our Future Goals
Enterprise Centre - One of the issues surrounding gender based violence is the inability of women to be economically independent. We would like to build an 'Enterprise Centre' where local women and young girls could be taught vital skills and knowledge to allow them to lead more independent, fulfilling and empowering lives.
Skills taught at the centre will include soap making, weaving, beading, tailoring and cooking to allow women to set up home enterprises, as well as basic business management and book keeping training to support them in these endeavours.
The Akina Ties Sewing Project - In 2018, we started a small sewing project at Akina Ties. We fundraised and raised approxiately $2,000 to purchase sewing machines, fabric and the services of a qualified seamstress. The seamstress taught our older girls how to make simple aprons, table-runners and cushions in beautiful 'African' themed printed fabric.
We would love to expand this project to enable local women to learn sewing skills through the Enterprise Centre.
