Preparations for the 2021 Tailoring Program

Right now preparations are well underway for the 4th Husky (now part of the Cenovus group of companies) Tailoring Program for Women, Qinghai Province, China. Chosen from among many applicants, 30 women from underprivileged backgrounds will eventually be selected as the next group to commence their training. These women will be considered “furthest from employment”, and this program will turn their lives around. Many, for the first time ever, will have the capacity to earn consistent income on their own terms.

Our thanks to the team at Cenovus for making this possible. Can’t wait to communicate the first day of the program (starting sometime next month). #happeningnow

Strong Will to Study

Despite her good grades, it was still unlikely for Lhamo to proceed to college. Her mother had difficulty sending her to school so she decided to stay at home and help out with the household chores.

New Skills and Confidence

I only went to school for three years as a little girl because my parents couldn’t afford to send me anymore. Now that I have a son, I know it is my duty to provide for him but it is not easy when I have no education or skills. I am Jorbakyid and this is my story.

Easing the Family's Burden

Drolmatso, 27, lives with her family of seven members in a remote area. She mostly stays home to take care of the household, look after their children and send them to school, and assist her elderly in-laws. They solely depend on her husband and the income he earns from his part-time jobs. Because of this, Drolmatso wishes to learn a new skill which she can use to earn a living and help lessen her husband's burden of supporting the whole family.
