Empowering women

The Empowerment Center has two community women working in a retail space that's been added to the center, Gakii and Lukea. In this space, products created by the women learning in the center are being sold as a means of income for the EC.  The retail space is located in Isiolo where many are commuting through the city and we expect the space to see some traffic as a result.  

The EC students are now making uniforms for kindergartners at the school in Attir. An arrangement was made to provide the uniforms in exchange for the village covering the entire salary of the teacher for a month creating a win-win for the children. We have more progress to be made for this operation to be earning sufficient income to be self-supporting, but they are getting some practice and developing solutions.

There are 21 students in the dressmaking program. In addition, the hairdressing program has started. Two young women from Attir, Meri and Sylvana, are serving as volunteer teachers for 5 - 6 students who have started the program. Meri is a graduate of the tailoring and dressmaking program, as well as having a talent for hairdressing. 

Your ongoing support is how this important work is being done.  Offering a hand up to those in great need!
