WECF cooperated with the German charity Katachel e.V. to initiate a sewing project for young women and girls in Kunduz, Afghanistan. This provides long-term prospects and sustainable development.

Two teachers were employed to train 15 girls and young women in an intensive course in sewing. Funding the project entirely by donations, it was also possible to employ helpers to keep the teaching facilities clean, and to provide tea and bread for the students’ children. In December, at the end of the successful training, every student received a certificate, along with a sewing machine. Especially during the cold winter in Afghanistan, the skill to sew is useful and even necessary for families and women.

The development minister in charge of Kunduz, the minister of women, and representatives of the Ghazi Khan School were present and praised the new project. With the cooperation of WECF and Katachel e.V., women gained sustainable means of existence and independence by being able to make their own, and sell extra produced clothes.



More information on this project can be found on the German website of Katachel e.V.
