The women we serve often face structural barriers to employment and therefore, barriers to further empowerment, we provide far-reaching employability development programs.
KEP offers a 6 month comprehensive textile training course covering introductory clothing design, construction and tailoring techniques. Women receive official accreditation upon completion of the course, allowing them to be part of our social enterprise or find employment within the textile industry.
To encourage ongoing stability and growth, KEP maintains relationships with local ethical textile companies and facilitates employment within those companies for graduates of our program. Collaborating with textile companies also dedicated to women’s and environmental rights, KEP has developed a training program designed to give women the specific expertise needed for success in that field. Ongoing support and consultation is offered to our graduates as they continue to work.
