Provide Sewing Machines for Women

Bitcoin Enpact - 210 days of access to an income-generating tool

Impact Level

Provided funding for 210 days of access to an income-generating tool to disadvantaged women 

Project managed by: Every Home Global Concern

Country: Bangladesh

Project Description

Provide sewing machine for women in Bangladesh so that they can start a home business. Women in Bangladesh need help to buy their own treadle sewing machine. As part of our community development program in Bangladesh which centres around primary school education for children from the slums, we provide sewing machines for women each year (many of whom are the mothers of the school children) so that they can start a home business. Treadle machines are preferred as the electricity is unreliable.

More About This Project

Over the 3 years (2016-2019), as one component of a community development program in 5 poverty-stricken communities, EHGC has been enabled by its donors to provide sewing training to 350 unskilled women who have developed in their self esteem as they sew clothes for their families and sell items in the markets. Some have been employed by garment factories and the extra income earned has made their lives better in every way.
