Our Team has in total 10-11 Tailors, 10 Women, 1 Man; The man got a place in our women empowerment workshop because he was already teaching women, who wanted to attend our program and he is also an excellent tailor, who is an enrichment for the project.

Priscilla was working with Genevieve, the first tailor in this project, since 2018. She orderd tailord fashion for her privat use and also for her friends. Genevieve, whom Priscilla knows from a german friend sewed a lot of wonderful pieces for her. After some difficulties in the working relationship Priscilla did not want to leave this business relationship and the Idea for Kofaya was born. A training center for digital sellers, where the tailors learn more about the international market and on the same time get their chance to sell their own goods to Europe.
