Yatm, Artisan and New Student Teacher.
One of our dear artisans, Yatm, from Eritrea, Africa, not only creates beautiful products as an employee at Re:new but has begun teaching new students how to sew!
Yatm says, "I remember being a sewing student and now I like helping other new students."
We are so proud of Yatm for stepping into this role. Our free sewing classes for refugee women take place both Friday mornings from 9am-11:30am and Tuesday evenings from 5pm-7pm. We currently train 8 new students with the hopes of employing those who complete the program.
Thanks to Yatm and all our volunteers who make these classes happen!
