Tailoring Crafts Project Update

In February last year we began our Tailoring Crafts Project which aims to provide sustainable skills to the community in which we work.

24 students signed up and so far they have learnt how to operate the sewing machines well enough to make clothes for themselves and for their families. They are also making school uniform for 45 of our Orphan and Vulnerable Children and have secured a contract to make school Uniform for Musoto Children. This is a real success story and we're very proud of our team, pictured below.
