Hot news from the Good Factory tailoring workshop in Burkina Faso! The 14 trainees, who have been learning the profession of seamstress for three years, have just taken their final exams.
It was not easy. The first theoretical part showered the candidates with a barrage of questions. The next, practical part, involved taking measurements and cutting a predefined pattern for a dress.
The mood was increasingly tense as the stakes were high. Completion of the course in our tailoring school is confirmed by a state certificate which entitles you to practice the profession and open your own atelier.
We now know that all fourteen, although with varying results, passed the exam. They will find out the results in a moment! The main task of the Good Factory is to provide equal opportunities for people, so in addition to new skills we want to give those in our care a very practical tool – a sewing machine – which will make their start easier!
If you want to help us by doing something very good and just as practical, donate a sewing machine that will open up new possibilities for our students.
