Edgars, UN and Kwazulu-Natal government partner to empower women living in shelters
15 August 2016
The Edgars UNiTE Orange Day, a partnership between Edgars, the United Nations, the departments of Social Development and Community Safety and Liaison in Kwazulu-Natal (KZN) and the national and provincial Fashion Councils has been launched at the Celrose Textile manufacturing facility in Stanger, KZN.
The initial launch which was successfully held in Gauteng in November 2015 has been hailed as a success. The project’s main objective is to train and empower women in shelters. A total of 40 women are undergoing training in the Gauteng Pilot programme whilst the KZN launch will see approximately 39 women enrolled for training in sewing and basic elements of fashion design.
