Sewing Academy

This class empowers women in the community by providing income-generating opportunities for women who, due to language barriers and raising families, have been severely financially handicapped. Through this program, these women can contribute to a viable workforce of stable, gainfully employed, self-sufficient, and confident women who will be a source of economic stability to their families and to their community. In this program, 12 women per semester learn the marketable trade of sewing via 100 hours of instruction in order to eventually use their new skills to become financially independent. Dar Al-Hijrah Social Services is delighted to be part of these women’s path to independence, and we ensure that they received the support they require every step of the way.
