Learning Center

The Project

We stand by the rights of women and girls to receive an education.  Our Workshop and Learning Center will provide classes for those women and girls with limited education and those who desire more challenging opportunities. 

Each year our project grows. We started with just 8 embroiderers in 2017, and now we are at 25. We warmly welcome more women wanting to join, knowing that the impact on families is significant.
