Amani Sewing Academy
PROVIDING LIFE SKILLS FOR REFUGEE WOMEN!
"Stitching Lives Together"
Amani Sewing Academy is an expansion of a
workforce development, job readiness, life skills apprenticeship program at Amani Women Center.
Refugee women participating in this program are
in need of a safe space where they can continue making the products that they are already making
as well as have an opportunity to
acquire sewing skills.
AMANI WOMEN CENTER (AWC) fills a very important gap for the work we do in the refugee community by providing culturally sensitive programs and services to the different ethnic groups represented in Clarkson, Georgia. Crucial to the AWC’s work is a holistic, culturally informed, and collaborative approach. AWC believes in the value of creating trusting relationships on a person-to-person basis to identify community needs and obstacles to develop effective solutions that empower and strengthen the community. We continue to show commitment by effectively and efficiently providing tailored programming (e.g. our sewing academy and) and services through our ethnically diverse team that is reflective of the community we serve.
