In September 2020, the first phase of the free training course for handicrafts education was launched at the Kuwait Educational Complex for Girls in Hargeisa. The course aims to teach sewing and hand embroidery for orphan and widowed mothers who cannot find a breadwinner for them.
Which is organized by the Technical Institute for Girls in the complex, in direct coordination with the Africa Relief Commission (ARC) – Somaliland
During the opening of the session, Mr. Hussein Metwally, Manager of the Industrial Technical Institute, urged the trainees on the importance and necessity of learning handicraft skills, which are a good source of income in Somaliland. The director of the institute thanked the supporters for fully funding the course, especially the International Mercy Society in Kuwait, wishing the continuation of such courses because of their great importance in the lives of women and their positive impact on the family.
On her part, the trainer, Mona Muhammad Musa, touched on the topics that will be covered by the training course, and the skills that the trainees will acquire at its conclusion.
It should be noted that the course in its first phase targets (60) trainees in two phases, morning and evening, covering the costs of transporting them to and from the institute, which will last for three months, ending in early December, at the end of which the trainees receive certificates of participation and free sewing machines.
It is noteworthy that the training courses implemented by (ARC) with direct support from Al-Rahma International Society in Kuwait and philanthropists from the State of Kuwait come within the framework of supporting women and developing their career path to enable them and their families to be self-sufficient and obtain job opportunities and a decent life.
