How it started
By showing up and building relationships in a local slum called Katanga, eventually the need arose to provide some job skills and training. From a small, rented, shop a few woman began practicing making beads and doing some basic tailoring.
Today Thread Of Life is a full fledged fashion design and production facility. Located just near to Katanga, "Thread" continues to host trainings and workshops for woman and mothers in the slum. In addition to tailoring, TOL also hosts financial trainings and other social services.
Thread Of Life has become our model of social business development and continues to be the primary resource for connecting with woman from Katanga slum. In the future we hope to provide additional job training, counseling and mentorships so that every family in Katanga would have the opportunity to have a healthy life.
