Successful Job Outcomes for the Husky Energy Tailoring Skills Program

The Husky Energy Tailoring Skills Program continues to help more women in Qinghai feel empowered as they acquire both employable and life skills, and move towards independence and self-sustainability. Most of these women have never been to school and have skills and very few job prospects.

Thirty women have just graduated from the program and another 30 are getting ready to start later this month. Two women share short accounts of their experience and where they are now because of the program.

Drugmo – “I enjoyed learning the skill of tailoring. It was all very new to me. I successfully completed my internship and I was offered a full time position with a stable salary. Now I can rely on this profession to make money and lighten the burden of my family. Although I have never been to school, I can have confidence that my children can finish their studies and have good careers.” 

Dorjetso – “At the beginning, our teacher taught us how to design clothes, draw patterns, and measure sizes. It was not easy for me to learn these things because I have never been to school before. Our teacher’s patience and way of teaching have helped me make great progress. Now, I am a salesperson in a clothing store in my hometown, and I help make clothes. I receive sufficient and regular salary each month. I really like this job and I am very grateful to you for giving me this opportunity to participate in this training.”

Our biggest thanks to Husky Energy for fully funding this life changing program for women. The Husky Energy Tailoring Skills for Women Program continues to provide training and assistance to 30 young women every year.
