Distrct 31 was honored to be presented the Service Recognition Award in 2020-2022 Biennium of participation in [Zonta Gives Love to Taiwan ’ s New Immigrants & Cross Border Service] at 2022 Convention in Hamburg. The cross border service project was cooperated with the like-minded association~Love Binti International. With the donations of US$44,000 from the joint effort of Zontians in Taiwan, 250 sewing machines were purchased to help Uganda and remote areas in Africa to set up sewing training centers.
Since the establishment of the sewing training center for a few months, it has cultivated many women in Africa and made many beautiful finished cloth products. Love Binti International brought some products back to Taiwan and showed the results in the handover ceremony of Taipei III Club on September 6, 2022.
A colorful cloth bag was given as a gift to all the participants, and with Zonta store at the venue, where many handmade products were sold for charity. Zontians donated generously to snap up the goods and gladly to witness the achievements of D31 cross border service project.
Another tailoring training center set up at Makerere University in Uganda, has now further cooperated with the School of Lifelong Learning Education to officially start classes, adding special classrooms so that students can study fashion and clothing design for a period of two years, and can obtain a national certified certificate after the training. This is in line with the project of [Uganda Vocational Training] to provide students with practical skills that employers need and giving them degrees. The Department of Fashion and Costume Design teaches students the art of applying design, aesthetics to clothing and its accessories.
It is believed that the women and students of those sewing training centers in Uganda will produce more cloth products, to upgrade their skills, achieve economic independence, and make a better life. Zontians of D31 will continue work together to build a better world for women and girls.
