Sewing Class 2012!

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Thanks to supporters like you, Sustainable Cambodia had a very successful 2011 working towards sustainability and self-sufficiency through wells, irrigation systems, schools, training, and empowerment. It is not too late to sponsor a student, give a pass-on animal, or contribute to the purchase of a well. Click here to Donate now!

Sewing Training Provides New Lives to Young Women!

Did you know that 30% of female students from poor families in Cambodia drop out of school because their families can't afford school supplies, supplementary class fees, and transportation?

To help those young women improve their lives, Sustainable Cambodia has created the Vocational Training Project to teach them to sew so that they can run a small business at home.

Currently, 8 female students who were forced to drop out of school are receiving sewing lessons. The class size is limited by the number of sewing machines that Sustainable Cambodia owns (5).

This project has been so successful that the Singaporean Team from Sa Baay Organization has asked them to make beautiful and functional laptop sleeves for them to sell (see below).

  1. If you want to venture into business with your sewing skills, it will be an advantage if you take classes. You should learn more about the terminologies used in sewing, equipment to be used, techniques, as well as how the business runs. You don’t want to go to a battlefield unprepared.
