Vocational Training & Sewing Tools
United Hands Relief works tirelessly to empower women and transform their lives through access to education and skills training, thus breaking the cycle of poverty.
Training for Widows in Jordan
In 2020, United Hands Relief launched a women’s training program in Jordan enabling widows to access a three months training course teaching them sewing skills and technical design. The course helped vulnerable Jordanian widows, as well as refugee women from Syria and Palestine, to become self-reliant. These women now have the skills to enter the labour force and support themselves and their families. All of the trainees are living in poverty and half of them have fled for their lives from the brutal conflict in Syria to become refugees in neighbouring Jordan
