Community Development: From Skills Training to Income Generation

05
Aug
2014

Over the past year, one of the main development goals of the group has been to teach sewing skills. We've watched as the students have grown in ability, creating beautiful, unique items. With one year of experience under our proverbial belt, Make Welcome is working towards tackling the second item on our community development agenda: training in finance and business while we assist the women in generating new income streams. 

As a first step towards this goal, we've partnering with Journey Home Crafts. The Journey Home brand is focused on supporting refugee artisans, and both past and present students will have opportunity to sell handcrafted goods through this outlet. In conjunction with this opportunity, we hope to train in personal and business finance  fundamentals, product development, customer outreach, etc.

You can support this next step for our organization by praying for us, by sharing about Journey Home with your friends, and of course, by purchasing items made by our students as they come up for sale.

    Howdy! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could locate a captcha plugin for
    my comment form? I'm using the same blog platform as yours and
    I'm having trouble finding one? Thanks a lot!
