We host artisan trade training courses that are open for any community members to attend. The goal of these events are to invest in the lives of the women by helping them learn a skill that can be utilized with little to no startup cost.
Women who participate in the artisan training courses will learn how to create jewelry, cleaning supplies, clothing, baked goods, and more. Training courses change based on the needs of the unique tourist-driven economy in the Dominican Republic.
In addition to the artisan training courses, we host a dedicated sewing workshop where local women learn sewing skills. Those who persevere in their training are given the option of taking one of our sewing machines home so they can work toward opening their own business.
