Zambian Breweries has empowered five less-privileged graduates from the House of Moses (HoM) orphanage in Lusaka with sewing machines to help them start up their own tailoring business, earn some income and support their families.
The five recently graduated in tailoring from the practical skills development centre which is located at the orphanage.
Zambian Breweries corporate affairs director Ezekiel Sekele said the company was committed to helping and empowering people to improve their lives, adding that through its empowerment programme Zambian Breweries believed in bringing people together for a better community.
“We support entrepreneurs, whether directly linked to our value chain or not. We, at Zambian Breweries, believe in growing livelihoods and supporting the change that young people in business can bring to our country,” he said.
“The story of House of Moses empowerment of five graduates to start sewing business was a good project to support due to the immediate benefit that the donation will make on the families. We are also mindful of the fact that sustained growth of the business is intertwined with the prosperity of our people in the community.’’” he added.
House of Moses executive director Daisy Muzukutwa said the orphanage started an empowerment programme, this year, for vulnerable families after turning one of the rooms at the ,house of moses, into a skills development centre.
HoM is an orphanage managed by the Christian Alliance of Churches in Zambia (CACZ). Currently the orphanage has 32 children under three years old. Most of these are children that are abandoned in communities and brought to the centre by social and community development officials working with the medical personnel.
