Located in the city of Goma, the TWTC is a place for women fleeing the ongoing conflict in their villages to develop the skills needed to support themselves and their families in the city.
The TWTC offers the women a 1-2 year program to train in a new skill and begin a solo or cooperative business.
We have a group of 8 women currently in their 2nd year of training. Our first-class graduated in June 2016, and to date, we have graduated a total of 57 women in seamstress training who also learned tie-dye processes and have gone on to start up sewing cooperatives to generate income to feed their families and educate their children. Ten women have learned basket weaving skills. A total of 15 women (1 woman from each cooperative business) have gone on to microfinance training. We continue to train new trainees and our graduates in additional business and income-generating skills.
The cost to support a woman is $50 CDN/month or $600 CDN/year with a two-year commitment.
