Agency: Bienvenu Shelter
This project will provide valuable skills and business knowledge development that will enable women in Johannesburg’s Bienvenu Shelter to find jobs or start small businesses. REI funding will support the project’s 12-month sewing skills training program whereby women can develop their skills and also improve their English and business knowledge. The project leaders will also offer childcare support to the residents of Bienvenu Shelter and the community as a whole, which will allow more women to take part in the sewing program. Overall, the sewing project will directly benefit 140 women from the Bienvenu Shelter by providing them valuable skills that can lead to a brighter future.
