Expanding women’s economic opportunities (decorators and the decorated)

Through education, entrepreneurship, vocational training, and financial assistance we equip women with the knowledge and skills to earn an income and break into paid employment sectors. At Sackhumvit we provide skills, networking opportunities, mentoring, access to information, financial credit and business management training. Working alongside step by step we foster an encouraging environment and expanded opportunities for women’s entrepreneurship and employment. Our wings are spreading slowly but surely. It’s been a busy first quarter with wedding and corporate orders. We are thankful to our friends who have helped us procure these orders. We are at a stage where the main problems of the business is obtaining customers and delivering the product or service contracted for. Among the key questions are the following: Can we get enough customers, deliver our products, and provide services well enough to become a viable business? Can we expand from that one or two key customer or pilot production process to a much broader sales base? Currently our set up is a simple one. The Trust supports and directly supervises women who are in the process of acquiring skills. The project’s strategy is simply to remain alive. We hope to expand customer base and turn into an enterprise!
