Who are we?
The project’s focus is to enable refugee women with the skills to manufacture handmade textile products which will be sold via our website and social media platforms, targeted primarily for European and US markets.
To help achieve this goal the project aims to supply practical ‘on the ground, in-country support’ with a secure and stable working environment. It also aims to supply adequate hardware (industrial sewing machines, etc.), provide training in manufacturing processes and business skills and establish both a robust supply chain of materials and a secure sustainable route to market.
Our project is not about religion, ethnicity or politics, it is about the women themselves and their empowerment. We want to provide them with the skills and the opportunity to earn money to care for their families, feed them and have a secure home. We aim to offer some stability and enable them to move forward with their lives and fulfil their aspirations for the future.
