Challenge

This project trains young adult orphan women in Zimbabwe with sewing skills so they can earn themselves a living. They make school uniforms for many schools and are the ‘local’s choice’ of dress maker! Now they are training & employing more women & building a production facility/showroom to cope with the demand. They give women a future stability that was previously unavailable! 50% of BSG’s income supports 15% operating costs of its associated orphanage, housing 60 aids / abandoned children.

Solution

BUILD a new sewing facility: Buy bricks, fixtures, equipment; employ builders TRAIN women - garment/product design, production & manufacture, accounting, business management, strategic planning, marketing & advertising, team building & management.

Long-Term Impact

The fulfillment of dreams of women in this generation & generations to come, giving them an access out of orphaned life & integration back into the community. The women of BSG fuel the local economy by local supply & demand now & for years to come.
