In 2015/16 we partnered with Rudi International to provide skills for vulnerable women in Eastern DRC. This class has changed lives by giving these women the means to provide for their families, bringing them a sense of independence and hope! Meet the women who benefited from this 10 month long sewing class and learn how it has impacted them!
As you can see in the video, the women are very grateful and wish for this program to continue. We are currently in the process of preparing the next class, starting December, 2016! The next class will bring in a few of the previous graduates as trainees, providing them an internship opportunity that will further advance their skills.
We are very much looking forward to further enhancing this program and changing more lives, in the next stage of this project - Dec, 2016 - Sept, 2017. Please see our Encourage a Mother page for details on how you can support this program!
