ISESCO and BADEA Implement an Assistance Programme for women working in sewing and embroidery in Guinea and Uganda

The Islamic Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ISESCO) and the Arab Bank for Economic Development in Africa (BADEA) are implementing a new phase of the technical and material assistance programme for disadvantaged women in Conakry, Republic of Guinea on 8 – 21 January 2018ة and in Kampala, Republic of Uganda on 19 January – 01 February 2018.

In this regard, this assistance programme benefits 40 women working in the field of sewing and embroidery from different regions in Guinea and Uganda. The beneficiaries will receive a number of sewing and embroidery machines to create their own micro-businesses and undergo a vocational and technical training to build their capacities in their working fields.

ISESCO is represented in the supervision of this programme’s implementation by Seydou CISSE, expert at the Directorate of Education.

It is worth noting, ISESCO and BADEA first started the implementation of this programme in 2013 with the aim to fight poverty and vulnerability in ISESCO African Member States. To this date, many women from Burkina Faso, Cameron, Togo, Niger, Benin, Ivory Coast, Senegal, Gambia, Mali, Chad and Gabon have benefited from this programme.
