Women’s Sewing School

Education & Skill Training

Education & Skill Training - Zakat Foundation of America | Zakat Calculator | Muslim Charity | Muslim Aid Students at Womens Sewing School - Ghana

As part of the Development/Sadaqa Jariyah Programs in Ghana, Zakat Foundation established a sewing center in Kumasi, Ghana, West Africa in 2006.

While Ghana is one of the most economically stable African countries, women in impoverished, rural areas have very few options for employment and are often held back by a lack of formal education and training. The goal of Zakat Foundation’s Sewing Center in Ghana is to enable women in the community to develop a skill that is valued by the community and will, in turn, secure them a steady income.

Of the women enrolled in the Sewing Center, many are widows with small children or young women whose income is vital to their families’ survival. Upon completion of the course, graduates receive a sewing machine and cloth to allow them to get started working with a cooperative or to start their own independent shop.

 

Zakat Foundation of America, a Muslim charity that collects zakat, sadaqa / donations to provide humanitarian, emergency relief and sustainable development programs to empower lives throughout the world. We offer top Zakat resources including The Zakat Handbook: A Practical Guide for Muslims in the West, Zakat kit, ask an Imam feature, and you can calculate and pay zakat through our easy, online calculator.
