On-going training is a vital part of our organization’s effectiveness. Local women are trained in garment production, including sewing or embroidery. After training, the women either work directly in ThanaparaSwallows’s Handicraft Program or make at home mostly embroidery products for the Program.The training empowers the women by providing them with profit and thus with the higher authority within their families.
The training takes 3 months / 45 days. It is flexible in the duration though, following needs of the participants. The Training Center is able to accommodate up to 60 people at a time but the trainees groups consist usually of 20 to 25 women. Each group has one lecturer.
The Center is also available for lease to other NGOs, providing space for seminars, workshops or meetings and thus generating additional income. The comfortable Center has a well-staffed dormitory and computer support services are available.
