Heri Ministries Sewing Project Offers an Alternative
Heri Ministries takes teenage girls from difficult backgrounds and equips them with sewing skills in order to guide them towards becoming independent members of their communities. Many graduates have been able to help provide for their families.
The sewing college trains students in dress-making and tailoring and prepares them for their national trade certificate exams. The sewing program normally takes 2 years and can be pursued full- or part-time. During the course students learn to handle customers, to cost out their work and to maintain a foot pedal operated sewing machine. Upon graduation, they are quickly able to start their own business and stand on their own feet.
