Schooling as a solution: "Shule kwa Ushonaji wa Engoitoi Epuan"
Based on the challenges described in the project region, we have developed the project 'Shule kwa Ushonaji wa Engoitoi Epuan' (translated: Tailoring School Engoitoi Epuan). The tailoring school for girls from the age of 15 is a future vision of our association, which we plan to put into action at the end of 2022.
With the implementation of our tailoring school "Shule kwa Ushonaji wa Engoitoi Epuan" we aim to achieve the following 3 goals:
• Economic opportunities:
A high level tailoring education and a secure start into working independently will empower the women to earn a sustainable livelihood
• Mental health:
Creating a protected environment for young women, where they feel safe and where their concerns and needs are taken seriously
• Self-confidence & self-determination:
Empowerment to be able to determine one's own future by one's own efforts and independently from others and hence realizing one's own desires
