34 women graduate from a sewing course in Tyre supported by UNIFIL

9-6-2014

The Korean UNIFIL contingent in Tyre organized last week a ceremony to celebrate the 34 women graduates who have successfully completed the sewing course in Tyre.  Graduates received their certificates and the event was concluded by an exhibition showcasing their work to UNIFEL troops and to visitors who were able to purchase many of the products.
The Korean contingent had started organizing sewing courses for women in its vicinity since 2012 and for the purpose of creating work opportunities for women and helping them generate income.  Each course extends over one trimester (12 weeks) and, thus far, 350 women have benefited from this intervention and have learned to sew clothes and accessories and were initiated to various marketing approaches.
