Today was a very special day for our team. We visited Miss Supranational, Chanique Rabe’s Junior Sewing School at the Sijwa Project by African Monarch Lodges Chani designed the curriculum and taught the senior seamstresses how to teach the youth. This will ensure that the project will continuously grow. The ripple effect will make a huge difference in this community. Today the Sijwa dress designed by Chanique was also revealed. It will be produced exclusively at the Sijwa Project and all proceeds will come back to the community. We are so proud and honored to be part of this project and can’t wait to come back again soon!
