Sewing group was formed within the project by BWRC, “Business opportunities and support for the target group of women of Berd”, funded by the Fund for Armenian Relief. The objective of the project was to create job for the sewing group of the BWRC women and develop their business skills of bag’s production.
As a result of the project 600 TOT bags have been designed and produced for sale. 10 women have gained new skills of marketing and sales management. By the help of this initative they solved not only the issue of their unemployment, but also support to have a cleaner environment by promoting to use TOT bags instead of plastic bags. Three of them are included in “Herb’s production” project as sewers of ecobags of the wild tea assortiment.
