Samugam is committed to the training of different skills for girls from impoverished families. In 2007, with the support of the Province of West-Vlaanderen, Belgium, Samugam established a free tailoring program within the community.
In 2013, ‘Sewing the Seeds’, a tailoring project supported by Gayle Factor and the people of Melbourne, Australia, was established and it helps over 100 impoverished women to learn a skill. Over a period of six months, the women were provided with free tailoring training in addition to a gifted sewing machine. The skills gained through this program help to fuel women’s empowerment by creating a place for them within the labor market.
