Sponsoring Tailoring Courses

Each year Chifundo UK pays for three women, (one from each of the three groups) to do a tailoring course at the Beehive Tailoring School for a year. Some ladies complete the Certificate course which is a one year course with a formal graduation at the end.  Other ladies complete the informal course which is a shorter course.

The pictures below show the students who are taking courses in 2016. Yvonne (from Soche East group) and Chifundo (from Chilomoni group) are taking the Certificate course. Dene from Ndirande has completed the Informal Course and Esther, from Ndirande is starting the Informal course.

These courses help the women to improve their sewing skills when making the Fairtrade products from African fabric and recysced denim.
