Sewing Their Way to the Top, Kenya
In the Wezesha Vijana Club at Mwangaza Muslim Secondary School in Samburu, Kenya, young women and school administrators work together to develop sustainable, applicable business skills.
The Club focuses on supporting income-generating activities for both the school and the community by encouraging female students to propose business ideas.
Already, one student, who is an aspiring fashion designer, has pitched ideas to several investors who in turn have provided sewing machines for the school.
Now, the school has scheduled sewing sessions after school for girls to put their ideas into practice.
