The Rohingya Children’s Project, a partner organization with Feeling Blessed, has set up sewing centers right in the middle of the refugee camps in Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh. These centers are all about giving refugee women a chance to learn sewing and start making a living.
At these centers, women who have been through a lot are getting the chance to learn how to sew and do embroidery, which is a big part of their own culture. When they finish their six-month course, each woman gets a sewing machine. This machine helps them to earn money for their family and feel proud of what they can do.
Humza Irfan, the Director of Customer Success at Feeling Blessed, said, "These sewing centers help women get back on their feet. They're learning to sew so they can take care of their families and send their kids to school."
Women like Rubina Akter and Tayaba Begum share stories that really make you feel something. They didn't just learn how to make money, but they also made friends and found a community in the centers. Every piece of clothing they sew is a step towards building up their confidence and their lives. Watch their stories here.
Feeling Blessed invites everyone to support this great work. "Your help is so important to these centers," said Sameen Siddiqi, the Managing Director. "You're giving more women a chance to change their lives for the better. The change can come literally at the click of a button”.
