Skills Training (for Adults)

In order to truly move a family from vulnerable to independent, we need to ensure that there is some income for the family. We have therefore started skills training for some of our parents. It’s still small, but we plan to grow it over time to upskill more and more of our parents.

Sewing Centre

Since July we have been upskilling a group of women from the Alex community to make their patterns, sew several items and transform existing items. They have loved the experience and have shown real commitment to learning this new skill. 
The trainer is a volunteer with a background in fashion design and training has taken place every Saturday morning.

Beauty Training (Nails and Massage)

We recently trained 30 women to do professional gel nails and started them off with the necessary kit to start trading immediately. Phase 2 will continue in 2023, when they will learn massage techniques that they’ll be able to offer to private and corporate clients.

The trainer is a woman with her own business offering beauty, nails and massage, as well as training.
