COSTURING NEW PERSPECTIVES IN PARCELS – SÃO PAULO

The ProBrasil Association created the Sewing New Perspectives project in the district of Parelheiros – São Paulo in 2015, which was sponsored by Global Care – a German foundation to encourage social projects of Knorr-Bremse, with the objective of developing the women served, increasing the self-esteem, besides stimulating the autonomy and income generation of these families.

The project also highlighted, especially, the importance of the consolidation of women-entrepreneurs-solidarity in the labor market. The popular solidarity economy is an expanding area that recognizes the value of women’s work, especially of those who live in situations of social vulnerability and who undertake their workforce to produce social changes.

In addition to the technical cutting and sewing classes, the students had the opportunity to participate in lectures on entrepreneurship, marketing and basic finances.
