Lucy Lekidayo – Mwangaza Women Group Trainer
I am honored to be part of Amuka. My work is to train a group of 15 women from Karare region on how to sew, make small purses and re-usable sanitary towels. Thanks to Amuka Foundation for training’s on sewing and capacity building forums, which you sponsored me to attend.
Normally, we have our training’s on Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Saturday.
I believe and I am very confident that with the training’s, the women group will make more purses and sanitary towels. Currently, we are sharing 5 machines and this slows the work. I wish the women can get more of the sewing machines.
