Sorting and distribution of sewing machines and sewing materials
The sorting of goods from TCFWA were done by some youth and the women themselves. The women chose the fabric, measured it, recorded and attached a sample on a piece of paper. This phase we were embarrassingly not prepared. Despite the unpreparedness, we completed this phase in record 7 days.
