Livelihood Projects

In the field of sustainable livelihood program, innovative sewing training to IDP women was very successful. We trained about 150 IDP women, and presented each participant with a set of sewing machine at the end of the training. It opened up the way for them to earn considerable income, in addition to supplying them with (raw) cloth materials to sew thousands of uniforms for children living inside the IDP Camps. First we supplied tools and capital, purchased back the finished products from IDPs to donate to the school children. It earned them market oriented business management knowledge to become economically independent.
Shampoo and liquid soap making trainings are conducted in Dapaing Camp. This group started producing thousands of units now. We supplied tools and capitals to them, purchased back the finished products to be included in hygiene kits and donate to the IDPs in different camps. The producing IDP women group is earning a comfortable income now. The products being of standard quality, other INGOs working in these fields are approached to purchase these items from this group for their distribution. There are high hopes. Currently, they are putting 8,000 schools uniform order to these women sewing groups.
