Summary

Many disabled persons especially women in Kinshasa are relying on beggary to survive! So CALFE ( www.calfe.org) help them get trained in tailoring handcrafts to start their own business and get financially independent. Then CALFE provided them 10 sewing machines and other tailoring supplies to start Income Generating Activities. They'd now be working and help themselves but they are lacking a place for this. Then this project will also help more disabled persons to learn tailoring.
