Sourcing factory overstock fabrics with Samaki Workshop.

Samaki employs sewers from disadvantaged backgrounds, such as women living with HIV or who have been through NGO vocational skills training programs, and pays, on average, double garment factory minimum wage. Employment with Samaki makes a big difference: for some staff it means new skills training and professional growth, and for some, who support up to 10 dependents, it means vast improvements in health and quality of life for themselves, their children and extended families. More children are in school, young women are overcoming trauma and gaining independence, and fewer people have to endure dangerous and hard work to feed their families.
