Morogoro Sewing Academy: Microfinancing Partnership

Published: 4th May 2021

Following the Diocesan visit to Morogoro Diocese in March 2019, we returned with a clear sense that setting up a microfinancing project with the Sewing Academy could be a wonderful way of empowering graduates to set up small businesses.

“How do the graduates of the Sewing Academy set up in business?”  The answer to the question was, “With difficulty.”

Morogoro Diocese has an effective Microfinancing department administering a number of projects and they are willing to take on the administration of the Morogoro Sewing Academy Microfinancing Partnership.

We have been promised £3,000 to prime the pump of this partnership and would invite you to consider making a donation to the Morogoro Sewing Academy Microfinancing Project.
