According to this club, “we believe that education and leadership are key in giving every woman the opportunity to acquire new knowledge that can then enable them to become leaders in the homes, communities, and broader. Education is the key in establishing new initiatives, it addresses the need for women to acquire new skills. The goal of the project was to present more potential career opportunities for these women through the sewing courses.”
To this end, the members ran sewing courses 3 times a week for 2 hours, each class bringing the women participants closer and closer to a more independent financial lifestyle.

- This project is built on the SI’s belief in the skills and confidence model – if women are giving skills and the confidence to use those skills, their lives can be transformed.
- Again, we see members imparting their own skills to other women in their communities to learn, share, and empower one another.
- This project is not only creating leaders in the participants, but in the Soroptimists teaching the classes and becoming leaders themselves.
