About the Women's Training Centre
Our products are made in our Women's Training Centre, established in early 2009. Our dedicated centre holds free six-month training courses for women – focusing on sewing, craft and basic business skills.
By teaching a trade, this program allows poor, uneducated women to earn a living, and to provide for their families. In developing new skills and the ability to generate an income, women also develop a sense of pride and independence. Thanks to this and the social networks they build, the women are less likely to be exploited.
After completion, graduates are encouraged to organise classes in their respective villages, to share the skills they've learnt.
