Tailoring Project Funded by Global Philanthropy Alliance
With funding from Global Philanthropy Alliance, Mission With a Vision has started a tailoring program aimed at empowering women to start their own business. The goal is to help women forced into early marriage, gain skills which will help them start businesses for themselves. Most of the women have not had the opportunity to attend school. This project is well suited to the women, since it involves practical skills. We are seeking funding to employ a teacher and purchase books to give the trainees the basic reading and writing skills necessary once they start their businesses. We will also seek further funding from Global Philanthropy Alliance to expand the project and make it self-sustaining through production of clothes for sale by those who have received training. We thank Global Philanthropy Alliance for this support.
