The Hair Saloon Department: The Training Centre for Hair Dressing
The saloon department of the rehabilitation Centre was relocated to a newly refurbished structure close to the security post to attract reasonable patronage. The empowerment training is on-going with 7 women who are undergoing training on hair dressing. They have few months left to complete their training. One of the challenges on this section is to get a well-qualified salonist who will accept to live in the compound and work on weekends without charging more than we can afford to pay.
The Sewing Departments
The sewing section has just resumed with five learners and more may be joining latter. The Sewing department has also been moved to the shop close to the security post for easy display of designed items to attract customers.
Besides the listed departments, we also have provision for training women to acquire skills in the making of Soap, Izal, Dettol, air freshener, jik production
