Women receive training

The National, Tuesday July 12th, 2016

A WEEK-LONG life-skills training in Port Moresby last week was aimed at helping participants become self-reliant.
The training, organised by the Anglican Mothers Union of the Port Moresby Diocese, saw 23 people attending.
“The main purpose for this workshop was to help mothers to gain the knowledge and skills of sewing a meri blouse,” Anglican Mothers Union president Grace Meakoro said.
She said the participants were given simple step-by-step instructions on how to transform a three-metre piece of fabric into a meri blouse.
“After this training they may be able to sew (blouses) for themselves or sell them to earn some income instead of waiting for others to give them something,” she said.
The training at the Holy Family Anglican Parish Church grounds in Hohola ended on Friday.
Meakoro and Beverley Kakimo facilitated the training.
