Together with our partners, we have created a full 360° program, providing work opportunities, work-skill training, living support stipends, equipment loans and full social / life-skill support.

Tailor Empowerment’s admin costs as well as teacher, room and equipment are fully financed. 100% of your donation goes directly towards the living support stipend for one of our participants.    

For our first course, we still need help financing 4 of our 6 participants .

Our Mission

Tailor Empowerment’s mission is to bring participants into sustainable, meaningful income and help their families break the poverty cycle.  

What makes TE such an impactful program:

  • It is linked to an income generating opportunity with our partner The Tailor Network.

  • Living stipends allow participants to focus on the program full-time, without worrying about making time for work.

  • Affordable equipment is provided at depreciation value after the course.

  • Cooperation with NGO partners ensures social support, while transitioning to a state of financial independence.   

  • Training includes also basic ‘work-life’ skills like budgeting, tax reporting, packaging and sending of finished products.

"Overcoming poverty is not a gesture of charity.

It is the protection of a fundamental human right, the right to dignity and a decent life.”

- Nelson Mandela, Former President of South Africa
