18-year-old Huma,* who comes from a village, joined our sewing school because of her family’s poor financial condition.
Though it’s only been four months since she joined our vocational training sewing program, she has already begun earning from her new skills.
She told us that she is very happy to earn 500 Pakistani rupees (about $1.69 USD) per dress she makes. That income will also help continue her studies.
Huma is very thankful to RAM Foundation for providing her the opportunity to take the course free of cost.
Huma is one of hundreds of women who have come through our six-month sewing program seeking freedom from abuse, financial difficulty, and domestic servitude.
Our program offers them a safe place to learn an in-demand and marketable skill, basic good business practices, and become educated on their rights as women under the law.
