Together WI’s ‘Spool’ project received a TT$35,000 grant through the Digicel Trinidad and Tobago Foundation’s EPIC funding programme. The grant will also benefit Living Water Community. The EPIC grant will facilitate the purchase of two pods which includes commercial sewing equipment and essential materials needed in the garment industry.
Together WI is a non-profit that is part of a large programme which provides marginalised women with support through teaching income-generating skills. The ‘Spool’ project specifically impacts women from both the Venezuelan migrant and local Trinidadian community. ‘Spool’ develops these women’s skills in garment construction and allows participants to generate income.
