CIMERWA recognized that as the need for tailored outfits for use around the factory emerged, the tailors in the community next to the plant would be a key source of technical skills. Local tailors organized themselves to work in conjunction with CIMERWA to provide the required tailory service. The tailors were given an opportunity during the company’s 30th anniversary celebrations in 2014 – they were tasked to produce 128 graduation gowns within four days for the kindergarten and primary students of the CIMERWA School.
A total of 56 women worked independently under the guidance of CIMERWA and eventually delivered within the set timelines. CIMERWA remains committed to engaging these women in current and future projects aided with skilled guidance from the company.
