Trainee Zeinab Omar was delighted with the training that the sewing course provided and said: “We did not have experience of using sewing machines but this course taught us a number of skills in this field.”
Another trainee, Huda Ahmed, pointed out that the course will benefit a number of trainees who will learn new skills, and these skills will help them to be independent in the future.
One of the course’s trainers, Samiha Ali, said there is a lot of interaction among trainees and they compete to learn basic skills.
She added that the trainees are very creative and eager to learn about the various stages of sewing such as cutting and tailoring and hemming garments.
