Hi Friends, Near and Far! I am a 27 yr old female from Cape Town, South Africa who is seeking assistance in order to raise funds for a female skills upliftment project which I aim to get off the ground soon. It requires funding to get setup with 2 sewists machines (a standard one and an overlocker/serger ) which the women will be using whilst I'm teaching them how to do garment construction, cutting and sewing as part of their newly acquired skillset as I feel I can do more within our communities which are so often plagued with crime, violence and unemployment on a daily basis. I have thus decided that I want to upskill women, specifically those that have been abused, abandoned and left destitute (I am currently assisting 1 woman get started) with their kids and give them a skill whereby they can ensure self - suffiency for themselves and children. My contribution will be the time I invest ensuring this project is successful as well as making use of 1 room on my property and utilize my personal sewing equipment to for this purpose - which I hope will grow from here on with your help.
I have attached a picture of my setup which is not yet completed but in the beginning stages.
I would appreciate any assistance in this manner.
