This project provides tailoring training courses for girls in Myanmar. It will help them to pick up a profession, so in the future they will be able to earn their own money. Being able to do so is essential for young girls, it makes them independent and leads to a higher living standard. This project is funded by CAD, ''Community Agency for Rural Development'', situated in Yangon, Myanmar.
In Myanmar, many girls from rural areas can not continue to go to school after primary level due to a lack of high schools in most of the villages. Mostly their parents don't have enough money to send them to a school away from home. Therefore those girls are unable to get a job at an academic level. Parents are unable to provide food and shelter for a girl's lifetime. Consequently girls without any higher education or profession are at risk to get drawn into prostitution and poverty.
CAD provides professional coaching in tailoring as well as the material that is used. Girls are taught about the value and importance of the training which leads them to a profession that they can uphold for life. The skills they learn from our experts are taught to share with their neighbors and friends.
The project will train 200 girls allowing them to pick up a profession that will later make them able to: - live independently, - support their own families, - earn money to provide a good education for their children, - start their own business. All in all it will help the developing process of the whole Republic of Myanmar.
