Pana Wady Girls’ Orphanage

Kyaiklat, Irrawaddy Delta, Myanmar  2009-2010

Vocational training – Tailoring workshop

The founder of the orphanage had long dreamt of her girls being able to develop good vocational skills that would give them independent careers outside the orphanage. We helped her achieve this ambition.

We installed a tailoring workshop at the orphanage with a wholesale shop front alongside the workshop itself. We also provided the necessary machinery and fabrics, plus ongoing training of the girls.

As evidence of its success, the orphanage workshop secured a number of contracts to provide tailoring services to schools in the area. The existence of this Mandalay Projects facility also enabled the orphanage management to comply with government regulations on vocational skills training.
