This event is being held to raise money for RE:13, a social enterprise that exists to contribute to the economic development and sustainability of communities in Zimbabwe. They do this through offering enterprise and entrepreneurship workshops and sewing classes to members of semi-rural communities there.
These sessions form the foundation for the second phase of the project, which will see them working with aspiring entrepreneurs and supporting them through the process of setting-up micro-businesses using upcycled textiles, recycled materials and fabric scraps as the raw materials to create beautiful and functional clothing, accessories and home decor items. RE:13 will continue their support through to the sale of the products, helping each business to access new markets, offering online sales opportunities and pop-up shops in Zimbabwe and internationally.
The first cycle of the project will take place in February 2018 and their fundraising efforts will go towards the following:
• purchase of sewing machines and haberdashery supplies ie. zips, buttons, lining, patterns etc
• a sewing start-up kit to each participant
• training venue and project participants costs
• production of an enterprise handbook in English with Shona and Ndebele
• setting up online shops and physical pop-up sales events
Come and join them and have fun for a good cause!
