The Design26 Foundation hosts Sewing Projects twice a week, for teen mothers. There is currently one branch located in Westgate Mitchells Plain run by Suraya Williams, Sulayla Adhikari, Rashieda Lanie, Naeema Petersen and Gadija Sait.

Our aim is to skill teenage mothers and young disadvantaged girls from Mitchells Plain and surrounding areas with the tools to sew, learn to earn and to be self-sustainable. The classes also include counselling and motivational sessions.

The sewing training will help teen mothers realise their dreams of generataing an income from garment making and working with material they will be enabled to support themselves and also their child from their earnings

With your support

We've trained 30 young girls and can help many more.
