26 previously unemployed young and older ladies are involved and employed at two locations. All of our participants –both the felters and wool preparers- receive the full training programme currently consisting of 7 modules (felting, dyeing, personal finance, project management, communication & presentation, marketing, finance & organization).
For those who in the longer term choose not to continue a felting career, the training certificate and working experience gained in our programme and projects in the past has proven to give our participants a competitive edge in terms of general employability. This will foremost apply to our participants in Amman.
We are focusing on getting new commissions on a continued basis in order to safeguard continued employment and ongoing impact. For the same reason we are working on expansion of our product range and our microbusiness programme.
