About 500 women each month learn tailoring and how to run a small tailoring business from their homes. Women enter the 6-month course not knowing how to thread a needle; they leave with a livelihood. They learn how to budget and how to save. They learn to make a variety of clothes from patterns. Health, peace, and women’s rights lessons are also taught. Course graduates sew their families’ clothes, start a home-based business, and/or become sewing instructors.
