Audrey Patra Atuhumuze – Tailor.me – Train a Woman (TAW)
Tailor.me is an arm of Love Unveiled Ministries’ Train a Woman (TAW) project in Oyam District in Northern Uganda. The project is aimed at eradicating poverty through economic empowerment by helping young people take charge of their financial situations through self-employment. Youth who are not enrolled in formal education are trained on the transferable skills with which they will be able to meet both their personal needs and those of the community, including sewing and tailoring. This will enable the beneficiaries to produce, and sell, handmade products, ranging from school uniforms and schoolbags to sanitary towels.
Audrey Patra Atuhumuze is aiming to restore dignity among girls in the community through both menstruation management and economic empowerment. The grant will be used to procure tailoring machines and initial materials to kickstart the 2019 training.
