3Sewing underwent considerable developments during the 20th century. As sewing machines became more affordable, demand for sewing patterns grew. In many countries, through new and old sewing technologies, women, youth and disabilities  have become accustomed to seeing the latest fashions in periodicals, and have helped thousands people in their families  to fight for  poverty reduction .
With the aim to ensure that families manage their own lives themselves, Better Future for Generations (BFG) has bought the initiative of creating a sewing centre offered to the beneficiaries for free of charge; our students spend more than three months acquiring sewing skills.
At the end of the day, our graduates are  able to sew clothing and other items which they can sell in the market and get  money to be able to have power for  market   decisions for themselves and bring their families out of poverty.
Furthermore, we encourage our graduates to create/join existing   sewing cooperatives so that they can grow and be able to sustain.
