Sewing, Cooking and Literacy


mixed-sweing

Empowering women with leadership skills. Majority of the women we serve, come from a context of economic underdevelopment, their skills are usually traditional, such as cooking and sewing.

They have few opportunities, and if they do work, they are generally in low skilled, badly paid jobs. In addition, Muslim women are identifiable in a community because of their garb and they can be stigmatized, which makes it even harder for them to acclimatize to Canadian society.

To help them generate income, we are tapping to the skills the women already have they can easily learn from the same cultrual background Group
