Heading back to Congo,
Leadership Training for Women
In August, we are traveling back to Congo with continued growth in our fair trade work. One of our very own team members, Rachel, will be making the trip to implement fair trade workshops at our sewing center located at Un Jour Nouveau, partners of Africa New Day. 'Women of Congo' is a three-month leadership training offered to empower women in the region that will go hand in hand with our fair trade workshops. We have created a curriculum for women to help in their artisan growth and fair trade experience.
The cost of the fair trade workshops and Women of Congo program is $250 per seamstress.
Our goal is to pay for 7 women to attend the workshops with a fundraising goal of $1750.
