Our new group of students who began studying with us in 2021 are making rapid progress as you can see from the attached photos where they are showing some of their work:
We did a survey in February of our first group of 36 tailoring and leather working students who graduated in July 2021. We located 33 of them and they all reported having paying work. Six of the tailoring graduates have come together to work as a group. This allows them to do larger orders. The results of the survey are proof that we are achieving our goals. What we are doing together is making a difference in the lives of young people in Niger. Thank you for your support that makes this possible!
We are also pleased to report that Friends of Niger notified us in late April that they will be giving us a grant of $5000.
