Girls in the beautician training session
Thank you for all your support and donations. Our project "A Training Center to Support 400 Women Every Year" has managed to raise an amount of $1,617 since it has been uploaded. We would also like to thank the donors who have supported us during the 2 matching campaigns which also contributed in the support. But there has been a decline in raising funds especially for this project during the last quarter.
Despite the technical issues with the disbursement through Fxecute transfers (which has been resolved now). We have received the amount raised for the project.
After receiveing the amount, we have also got the estimation of the construction from different construction companies and contractors. We will start working out on the initial structure of the building once we get the best quotation and raise a significant amount.
The donation process for this project is relatively slower as compared to our other initiatives, therefore we request all our supporters to please help us to achieve our target to support poor womenand girls.The amount collected is relatively not enough to start any kind of construction project at the moment as the construction requires bigger amount (atleast $10,000 minimum to start) .
Meanwhile AWARD has utlized the upper vacant portion of its current building and have started the training center for the poor young girls. Nearly 60 girls have started their training to learn beutician skills to earn livelihood and support their families. 60 girls are managed between 2 different shifts (evening and morning ).The duration of the training is 6 months.The training center will be shifted to the other building when it will be constructed. The girls are very excited and happy to learn the skills and hope that this skill will help them improve their livelihood situation as the demad for the beautician is very high.These girls after compelting their training will either start their own businesses or get employed in the other well established beauty parlours.AWARD has also started classes to teach the girls Sewing & knitting and fancy & hand embroidary in the training center.The admissions are open for the young poor girls to learn this skill.
It is worth mentioning that the approved map for the project has been updated and it has been uploaded in the previous report. Once again we thank you for all your support and donations and request you to please help us to achieve our target.
Please do not hesitate if you have any questions or queries.
