The Design26 Foundation’s sewing training centre started in March 2018. We are a not-for-profit, public benefit organisation. Formed out of a desire to support, restore, empower and bringing hope to teenage mothers and underprivileged girls aged between 15 to 21 years old. We provide free sewing skills training to teenage mothers and underprivileged girls. To eradicate any barriers that will prevent the effected teenager from attending training we provide a free transport service to and from our premises.
Rehabilitate the girls by creating employment and helping them use their sewing skills to avoid the risk of being exposed to drug or alcohol abuse which leads to child abuse and be dependent on government social grants or a second unplanned pregnancy. To help and support teenage mothers and underprivileged girls economically, socially and morally. To encourage the vulnerable affected girls to have skills by offering the course free to them. To contribute to the development of each applicant and make her dream for a better future in life.
To help skill and council, allow these individuals the opportunity to become employable within today’s competitive environment positively. Our being is to help the effected girls integrate back into their community.
To restore hope of a second chance, improve the quality of life, reshape the society targeted as well as working hand in hand with other partners like Department of Social Services, MI Learning and Development and PEP Clothing Manufacturers. We seeks to create a positive change in the lives of our effected community by building the capacities through leadership development, and community engagement to improve the livelihood conditions.
