Project Report | Jun 19, 2018
Fast Track Sewing

By Elizabeth Appleyard | Program Officer

AIL’s Learning Centers (LCs) give refugee and IDPs the opportunity to learn many subjects. They often start out with fast track tailoring/sewing and literacy classes, then as their confidence grows they take on new challenges. One of the most popular classes offered is tailoring because these refugee women need to earn money.  So far in 2018, 1,054 females (491 adolescents) are studying tailoring in Herat LCs and 376 in LCs in Kabul and other provinces. AIL tailoring students are grateful to be able to learn a useful skill which they will use to make clothing for their families, saving money and to earn money as a small business.  

Amena comes from a very poor refugee family she has this to say, “I have lived in a very hard situation my whole my life. My father is the only one who earns money for our family and only enough for food. I have no older brother to help my father and I have four sisters. I felt hopeless before joining the free tailoring class at the AIL center. I learned lots of tailoring skills and started to sew clothes for my sisters. Now I am able to sew every type of clothing. I have my own tailoring business and earn money.  I can help my father with the expenses of our daily life. I proved that there isn't any difference between boys and girls if the way is paved for them to improve themselves."
