Amani Sewing Academy (ASA) is an expansion of a social enterprise initiative of Amani Women Center (AWC)🕊. Refugee Women that are participating in this program are in need of a safe space where they can continue making the products 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. Amani Sewing Academy added a new instructor and 24 new students since the beginning of the year. Classes are on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
