ASAP thanks everyone who contributed so far to this project.The last group of girls to receive vocational training for two weeks were very pleased with the results. As much as possible, training was adjusted to suit what each student wanted. These trainings have been very much in demand by the local communities. ASAP is planning to conduct another training once the remaining $2650 of funding has been received as it is only cost effective in larger groups.
There is more to the training than just sewing clothes.As these girls learn to produce garments they begin to feel more personally valuable with increased self esteem. The cost of clothes is high and getting higher in Zimbabwe so anyone who has the skills to actually produce decent garments becomes a real asset to the community. And it's not just clothes for adults; they also make school uniforms at a discount to the cost of buying in town. We thank everyone again for supporting this worthwhile project and we hope you will continue to support it.
