THE TRAINEES WERE CERTIFIED TO START THEIR BUSINES

Certification of the Disenfrachised women at WIDC
Certification of the Disenfrachised women at WIDC

As the certification of trainees at Women Inspiration Development was drawing near WIDC initiated this project to provide sewing machines for the trainees as they are graduating. Unfortunately, we could not get enough donation till December 21st  when the Certification took place. We could only raise 1% of the needed fund which was $15 out of $1,500 needed for the purchasing of the sewing machines.

When it was evident that the fund to buy the trainees sewing machine was not coming in, the management of Women Inspiration development Center decided that the trainees should be allowed to spend another 6 month at the center after their certification so that they can be making use of the sewing machines at the center for the first six months of their business. This is because all the trainees are disenfranchised women that could not afford to buy the equipment needed to start their business on their own.

We are hoping that these graduates would be able to raise enough capital to buy the equipment needed to start their small business within the six months of their staying back at the WIDC.

The trainees were so happy and grateful that the center did not just certified them and threw them back to the street.

We want to appreciate our single donor for this side project and those who might still be part of the project.

Thank you!
