Tailoring micro-enterprise

We used the rotation concept that had been so successful in the piggery project and adapted it to tailoring. Tailoring students would complete a full training course in sowing and tailoring. Upon completion they were each loaned a sewing machine for a period of two years. This loan gave them the opportunity to start a business or home tailoring. Over 25 people gained tailoring skills to date.

This project has attracted a lot of community interest. KACCAD has not been able to keep up with the demand for services. The project is in need of funding to pay for facilitation of trainings and teaching materials. Materials needed include sewing machines, parts for their repair, cloth, patterns and other tailoring supplies. Tools that do not require electricity would be most beneficial seeing that the electricity in Uganda is inconsistent. Your donation of sewing machines would be greatly appreciated and well used. Financial support of this project would help us further reach the community demand for skills training.
