This event is being held to raise money for RE:13, a social enterprise that exists to contribute to the economic development and sustainability of communities in Zimbabwe, through offfering a programe of support to create recycled textile businesses. We do this through offering enterprise and entrepreneurship workshops and sewing classes to members of semi-rural communities there.

Enterprise and sewing skills session form the foundation for the project, which will see RE:13 working with the aspiring entrepreneurs and supporting them through the process of setting-up micro-businesses using upcycled textiles, recycled materials and fabric scraps as the raw materials to create beautiful and functional clothing, accessories and home decor items. RE:13 will continue their support through to the sale of the products, helping each business to access new markets, offering online sales opportunities and pop-up shops in Zimbabwe and internationally.

The first cycle of the project will take place in February 2018 and our fundraising efforts will go towards the following:

• purchase of sewing machines and haberdashery supplies ie. zips, buttons, lining, patterns etc
• a sewing start-up kit for each participant
• training venue and project participants costs
• production of an enterprise handbook in English with Shona and Ndebele
• setting up online shops and physical pop-up sales events

Come and join us, whilst we all have fun for a good cause!
