Through the generous support that, the Center for Accelerated Women’s Economic Empowerment (CAWEE) secured from Helios Investment Partners LLP, company based in London, UK, one of the best socially responsible investment companies; the Center has started implementing the project “Empowering 10 Young Women through the Provision of Skills Training in Tailoring”.

The skill training is given to 10 vulnerable young girls who can’t afford to pay for such kinds of trainings, to empower them through the provision of tailoring skills training.
