Success for Tserang – Husky Energy Tailoring Skills for Women

Tserang is 28 years old, a single mother living with her daughter and youngest son. Her parents were not able to send her to school as a child so she has no education and is illiterate. Tserang needed to find a skill to give her an opportunity to be able to provide for her young children. When she joined the Husky Energy Tailoring Skills Program for Women, Tserang learned the fine art of designing outfits and pricise cutting. She also learned how to best display the clothes in a shop environment and basic small business skills.

Tserang has completed her training and is now operating a small business from her house. She had a wonderful start to her new sewing business by securing a large order of 600 outfits for a local school. She will earn good income from this order. She is hoping that she will continue to secure large orders for other schools and grow a good reputation as a quality tailor in her region.

This has brought Tserang such confidence and stability in her life. She is able to send her children to school, knowing that she will also be able to provide them with a college education when they are older. She wants her children to have the opportunity of a career and a stable income.

Congratulations to Tserang for completing the Husky Energy Tailoring Skills for Women program. Thank you to Husky Energy for fully funding this life changing project that has equipped 30 women with skills and opportunities that will open doors for a bright future.

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.
