MAKKAH: Saudi productive families are being trained to make cloth masks through an initiative launched by the Al-Hayat Academy for Women’s Empowerment. The 90 families will manufacture around 20,000 masks a month that conform to medical specifications. The masks are 100 percent cotton and available in different colors. They feature a comfortable elastic band and the option of carrying institutional or agency logos.
The academy currently offers a number of professional and vocational sessions such as fashion design, decoupage, and soap-making as well as others to prepare trainees for entering the job market and marketing their products online.
