Sewing Graduate Returns to Learn New Digital Skills

Janet is an alumni of Elimu’s Heri Sewing Project. She lives with her two children in a rural village outside Malindi. Her sewing skills and the sewing machine she was given by Elimu are what allow her to provide for her kids, including school fees and uniforms. In 2017, Janet returned to Elimu. When she learned of the new digital fashion design program we run at Elimu Resource Centre, she asked to join. She travels the 90-minute journey to Malindi weekly now to gain computer skills and digital literacy. Along with the other students, she surfs the internet for fashion ideas from around Africa and is improving her English language proficiency and upgrading her business skills. She recently participated in our 2 nd Annual Digital Fashion Show.
