Lucky Atworo, Alum Holine – Aburadi Women’s Tailoring Group

Date grant awarded: November 7, 2018

Aburadi Women’s Tailoring Project in Lira, Uganda provides free tailoring skills to poor women who cannot afford to sustain their families by selling only produce. The project provides a space for these women to perfect their tailoring skills and eventually sew clothes for their own clients. Lucky Atworo started this project in 2017 with eight women who started a savings group and later added the tailoring component. They hope to save all profits earned from sewing clothes for clients and eventually secure their own independent sewing machines.
