Employment for Rehabilitated Women

The Blessed Project’s Sewing Enterprise in the Philippines focuses on two core objectives: (1) sustainability and (2) skills training to prepare young women for employment. Recently, orders from nearby institutions and partners were received. This social enterprise is beginning to earn income that will help it to grow and become sustainable.

As the project moves forward to increasing its capacity as a sewing line, the team recently hired Jelyn to be one of their assistant sewers. Jelyn was once part of the Blessed Project as a survivor of trafficking, and has been successfully reintegrated into the community. She works just like a regular employee in a company. She has already been involved in different sewing projects where she is showing great potential.

Jelyn’s story is just one of the many success stories the program wishes to witness as this social enterprise grows. Thank you for all your support.
