Instead of spending money to buy school uniforms, we received 2 sewing machines. 3 members of our community got a 3 months training, all materials for the uniforms were bought and we could, helped by the teacher, make all uniforms ourselves.
Training for 3 members of our community
We received our own sewing machines in January 2017
Buying uniform materials, threads, buttons and budges
Fitting the uniforms
If we are not making uniforms, we use the sewing machines to make new clothes or we do repairs on clothing or uniforms.
In between we give training to other members of our community in tailoring. With the extra income we can by salt, cooking oil, soap and paraffin for our lamps.
