THE STORY:

In 2013, a group of teachers, nurses and skilled community members in Manhiça, Mozambique joined together to form the Associação Sekeleka Moçambique. Sekeleka means “Stand Up” in the local language of Changana. The Association Sekeleka’s mission is to create “Desenvolvimento Sustentável” by providing training and courses that will help women, girls and youth acquire skills that they can use to help sustain their own lives. We provide courses in sewing, technology and English for the community but also, a group of women are given courses in small business and entrepreneurship and taught how to make hammocks made from the local fabric, “capulana”. We are trying to raise $8,850 for materials to make 100 hammocks! The profits of 100 hammocks would provide 5 women up to $400 of income to support themselves and their families and train 16 girls at the local orphanage in Microsoft Office, internet skills, and how to become health activists for the community of Manhica.
