    Weʼve raised £808 to sponsor Sewing Machines for women living in poverty in Pakistan

    Manchester, UK
    Funded on Sunday, 23rd September 2018

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    Contribute to developing handicraft, sewing and entrepreneurial skills of women from poorer communities in Pakistan through sponsoring a sewing machine. Providing women with these skills is much more than just an income-generating project and it is in of itself an act of community-strengthening, of honouring the role of skilled artisans, and especially women in our society.

    The project is aimed to empower women from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Punjab provinces to earn a living from home by starting up their own self-sustaining tailoring business. This allows them to support their family by making garments, doing embroidery work, repairs and alterations. Mothers, widows and young women will have an opportunity to use their skills to rise out of poverty and work towards a self-sufficient livelihood.

    Basic business practices, as well as assistance and training will also be provided where needed to enable these women to make the most out of their sewing machines.

    Owning a debt free Sewing Business allows these women to gain economic independence whereby they would not be able to due to cultural taboos of women not being encouraged to work outside of the home. It will give them the opportunity to do something meaningful even with limited education, helping to empower them within their households and communities.

    Just £70 can provide one woman a sewing machine and the opportunity to start her own debt-free business. Donate whatever you can and help us to reach our target to make a real difference in these women's lives.
