PARTNERSHIP WITH SOCIAL ENTERPRISE
Project Pencil Case (since 2009) is delighted to work in partnership with Social Enterprise Arakele Fashion Design College plc (since 2014) – an Ethiopian registered Small Business Providing Training in Sewing and Design to Ethiopian Women – helping to improve lives and create sustainable opportunities.
Targeted women who have received scholarship training through Arakele have included school girls who have failed 10th grade and 12th grade (also enabling them to attend night school so that they can retake their failed National exams), refugees from neighbouring countries including Somalia and Eritrea and women rescued from trafficking and case by case students who yearn to learn but lack the resources….
This year Arakele is producing School Uniforms and Pencil Cases with students being paid for the items they produce. Providing a student through Project Pencil Case with a Uniform and Pencil Case will also enable Arakele to offer ongoing scholarship tuition. Many school students lack these basic essentials as their families are unable to afford them.
- School Uniform (shirt and trousers/skirt plus waistcoat) for one student aged under 8: 25 UK pounds or 32 US dollars
- School Uniform for student aged 8-17: 30 UK pounds or 39 US dollars
- Pencil Case for one student: 5 UK pounds or 7 US dollars
The Arakele Fashion Design College is fully equipped and staffed and has been rated as a “Model Center of learning” – providing professional training in sewing (traditional and modern) including pattern design and providing trainees with the necessary skills to produce a variety of items.
