FORTY-two people now have some knowledge about sewing and designing clothes.

They graduated with certificates from the garment and textile training programme under the Small Development Corporation (SDC).

 It is a unit of small industries centre that specialises in training women in sewing and screen-printing apart from managing small textile business.

The training programme ended last Friday with 42 students graduating in two categories – certificate I and certificate II. The graduation exposed the students to the textile and garment industry. 

Present at the graduation were Department of Trade and Commerce Industry, Just Jit Clothing, and FRG Clothing officials.

 FRG Clothing manager Santus Sriwivasa commended the graduates on their success. 

“If you want to be successful you must work happily,” he said. 

“Do it for fun and don’t expect benefits, a small step forward is indeed a huge step in the world of business,” Sviwivasa said.

A major achievement the organisation achieved this year was the recognition of their work through the small medium enterprise meeting in Malaysia where the delegates wore Papua New Guinea designed shirts and blouses sewn by the students.
