Our Workshops

OUR WORKSHOPS AND ACTIVITIES

Thanks to many small local workshops and organised activities, we build our community through skill-sharing and creating art.

The aim of our workshop is to break the barriers between the educated and those who never got opportunity to go to school or drop out of school.
Our intention is to create an inclusive learning environment that embraces people regardless of the standards, class, race, gender, or religion.

We are committed to give young and old, men and women, transferable skills, working attitude/employable skills, social and managerial skills.

We use natural and accessible materials to make candles, soaps, baskets, etc, and exchange ideas and skills that can be used locally to generate income.
