The leather workshop exists since 21.03.2015.

All of the leather designers have spent 24 months at the NAZO training center learning to produce bags. 11 of these 25 women joined forces to establish a leather workshop within the localities of the center.

It gives the women the opportunity to continue working within the safe space of the NAZO center, which means: they can continue to leave their homes every day to work within the group instead of having to return to their houses working in isolation. The groups have been sharing their knowledge for years and they support each other – in short: the workshops promote the progress of the women while strengthening their network.

Many of the former students became teachers at their workshops and train new students, at the leather workshop there are currently 6 trainees.

And yet another positive impact of our job trainings: the women - as multipliers of knowledge - can pass their knowledge and expertise to other women and prospectively will not need to rely any longer on male teachers.
