One of our projects for My First Job program is Embroidery Skills Training.
90 women divided in 3 different classes were initally selected to participate in the training program to learn the fine art of embriodery. Out of these 90 women, 63 women participated in the mid term exam recently. These women come from families who lack skills and do not have the opportunity and ability to find stable employment or jobs near their homes.
Just last week, these women took their Mid Term Exam. 14 women in Class 1, 25 students in Class 2, and 24 students in Class 3 participated in the exam.
Tibetan embroidery is an influential craft among the traditional embroidery genres of Qinghai ethnic minorities, and it is a part of the farming culture in Tibet.
Traditional Tibetan embroidery is mainly used for Tangka embroidery, temple scripture hall decoration, and national costume production. Under the detailed explanation and careful instruction of the teacher, all the students have mastered the basic skills and are looking forward to growing those skills to grasp more intricate embriodery and eventually gaining their first job through this training.
Between January to June 2022, we will implement a total of four MY FIRST JOB programs across Qinghai Province, bringing hope and opportunity to 120 women and their families. Our thanks to ZURU for underwriting our MFJ Program, as well as key financial support from GPA, CAF America, SWIS and all who purchased a MFJ plush toy at our Annual Shenzhen Charity Auction.
