26 Women Ready for their Next Chapter

The women from the first Husky Energy (now part of the Cenovus group of companies) Tailoring Skills Program of 2021 graduated on July 31.

Thirty women started in the program in May, however, four of them dropped out due to family concerns. Most of them, aged 19 to 38 years old, have limited educational background. But all of them share the same goal, that is, to learn a skill to live on, provide for their children’s education, and uplift their family’s situation.

During the three months of intensive training, they learned the basic skills of making clothes and how to sew traditional Tibetan clothing, which they were able to put to test during their final examination. According to the teacher, 10 of the 26 women are already qualified to become tailors right after the training. Everyone received their diploma with gladness and heartfelt appreciation as they also start to plan on their next steps.

All the participants will undergo two months of internship to improve their skills further, and hopefully lead them also into stable jobs.

Thank you Cenovus for funding this program.
