Empower 100 women in Zimbabwe with Sewing Skills!



100’s of young orphan women seek training at Batsiranai Sewing Group to gain employment and future stability. BSG needs your help to employ more women & build a new training & production facility.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

This project trains young adult orphan women in Zimbabwe with sewing skills so they can earn themselves a living. They make school uniforms for many schools and are the ‘local’s choice’ of dress maker! Now they are training & employing more women & building a production facility/showroom to cope with the demand. They give women a future stability that was previously unavailable! 50% of BSG’s income supports 15% operating costs of its associated orphanage, housing 60 aids / abandoned children.

How will this project solve this problem?

BUILD a new sewing facility: Buy bricks, fixtures, equipment; employ builders TRAIN women - garment/product design, production & manufacture, accounting, business management, strategic planning, marketing & advertising, team building & management.

Potential Long Term Impact

The fulfillment of dreams of women in this generation & generations to come, giving them an access out of orphaned life & integration back into the community. The women of BSG fuel the local economy by local supply & demand now & for years to come.
