Sanya* joined Sewing New Futures at the age 18, first learned to sew and then took dance training to fulfill her goal of owning her own dance studio.
After years of dance classes, hours of practice and teaching dance classes at our sewing center; she achieved her goal and opened an independent dance studio.
An opening ceremony held yesterday afternoon brought her former and current students together, as well as other women from her community to celebrate her success.
A couple enrolled in dance classes with Sanya were inspired by Sanya’s story and offered to serve as business partners in her dance studio and even danced at the opening ceremony.
Sanya's success reflects the success of Sewing New Futures and the communities involved in empowerment programs.
