This program creates the opportunity to test your career interests, gain experience, and realize long and short term goals. We are partnered with highly respected fashion studios that offer courses to local students as well as design emerging traditional African fashion and clothing using our own textiles, such as the real wax print, wood etc which distinguish the features of the African traditional and international outfits.
We also work with women in Ghana who are into business. Our mission is to help them expand and develop their businesses into the international market. This will help them increase their income which will assist in empowering them and also taking better care of their families. Volunteers will work alongside the participating women seamstresses in creating unique and different styles as well as creating patterns.
The school provides syllabus and they currently have about 100 students. After school hours, local workers design & sew clothes for sale.
