In 2017 we are planning to provide regular sewing courses for women who are willing pay a fee for learning new sewing skills. Our target is women in the neighborhood who can afford to pay for the classes and bring their own materials. These fees will then be used to pay the salary of the instructor but also enable us to provide free training to underserved women in the area, including interested mothers and sisters of our students.
There are several vocational training centers in the neighborhood, offering free/nominal charges courses, which include computer skills, sewing classes, plumbing, training in livestock management and beautician courses, to name a few. The ultimate goal of these centers is to empower youth. Once our students finish their high school education (grade 10), we will assist them with the enrollment process to attend these centers. All these courses offer better prospects for employment.
The Safer World Foundation continues to match every donation made to this project by 50%. Please share this opportunity with friends and family you think might be interested in supporting underserved young women in Pakistan so that they may receive the hand up they need to chose peace and prosperity over violence and despair.
We always welcome visitors at our schools or trainings which can be arranged through our director, Farida email@example.com. Please help us generate awareness – become a fan of our Facebook page, join us on Twitter, and share with your networks if you haven't already. If you or anyone you know would like to start a MDF Allies in Action group in your community there are various one-time or annual or monthly ideas and activities. Contact us here to learn more. Thank you on behalf of the students, entrepreneurs and MDF staff!
