Sambhali Graduates' Sewing Centre 2
We opened the Brothers for Sisters Sewing Centre on 15 August 2013, adjacent to the Brothers for Sisters Empowerment Centre.
In August, the women and girls in the Empowerment Centre had finished nearly 6 months of training, and so we selected 10 of the women to begin producing goods in the Sewing Centre. They have a dedicated tutor as well as an experienced foreign volunteer, who help them refine their skills and teach them how to make a variety of products that can be sold in our shop 'Sambhali Boutique'. The women are paid on a piece-rate basis and according to the level of skill acquired, which means they are able to manage the amount of income they generate for themselves.
