Tailoring Skills Program

Tailoring Skills Program for Women and survivors of human trafficking

Our tailoring Training initiative is to empower survivors and vulnerable women in Gisenyi, Rwanda, through micro-entrepreneurship.

We teach women how to sew clothes and connect them to large-scale market opportunities, increasing earning potential and self-confidence.

How It Works

Tailoring trainees participate in a 6-month training at a local Center. The training is l conducted by expert instructors alongside trained Survivors and taught in the local language. After graduating from our tailoring program, there's no stopping women from using their skills to the fullest.

  • Micro-entrepreneurship
  • Trained survivors often go on to start shops in their villages.
  • Manufacturing

Trained survivors have the opportunity to join a training group at the Center, using their skills for large-scale market opportunities.

Spreading empowerment

Our trained tailors can start tailoring training programs, empowering even more women to thrive.
