UNIDO project imparts sewing skill training in South Sudan

Sewing skills are being imparted to a group of young, creative people in South Sudan under a United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) project “Integration and progress through protection and empowerment of displaced groups in South Sudan”, funded by the Government of Japan.
 
“We believe in training young people to help them acquire creative skills to design and fabricate marketable fashion,” says Ammar Al-Kital, Chief Technical Advisor of the UNIDO project in Juba, in a UNIDO press release.
 
“By doing so, we are supporting the Government of South Sudan in its efforts to secure peace, reduce poverty and foster sustainable social and economic development,” Al-Kitat adds.
 
Under the project, basic skills like tailoring are first imparted, and then a follow-up course helps the youngsters develop a marketable fashion with cultural identity.
 
So far, three product design workshops have taken place, featured designers, artists and professors. Participants were trained to use sewing machines, and were also informed that even elements of waste like old textiles could be used to produce original works.
 
Equipped with acquired creative skills in textile design and starter kits that include a sewing machine and materials, participants now have the necessary start-up elements that can help them grow their own businesses.
 
South Sudan became an independent nation in July 2011, and is one of the latest country’s to become a member of the United Nations.
