Our Skills Training & Tailoring Program
We share our base in Freetown with one of our partner organizations: Orthotics Rehabilitation and Medical Services – Sierra Leone (ORMS). Africa Surgery funds three educational programs directed by ORMS. One of them is the Skills Training in Tailoring Program. Currently counting over fifty students, it must run morning and afternoon classes, five days a week, to accommodate them all. Most of the students are impoverished local young women, with a few young men. They pay a nominal registration fee, to learn, and purchase the supplies needed to sew a uniform.
