I joined kazi foundation with no skills in tailoring.
To be honest for the time I have spent so far at kazi foundation,I have learned so many things in tailoring and fashion and they are easy for me.
At first it was complicated for me to learn how to cut different different styles of clothes but my trainer has made it possible.
Weaving is the best skill that can help me to get enough capital for my business. Once i get weaving materials, I can easily sustain myself. For the six months, I have learned how to weave woven mats, how to use criss-cross pattern to weave beautiful table mats. I can easily see all these categories, I have made so many stuffs for kids and I want to sell them.
I'm very confident that I'm going to be a better person in the future,even my kids will be well off because I can now see my future is in the right hands. I'm very grateful to kazi foundation who is supporting my training. Kazi foundation has done a great job for us and has helped us to come from the village and now we have peace and focused.
