Swissline is teaming up with Momentum Foundation, a Swiss non-profit organization in the making, to support and empower women in Rwanda by helping them build essential skills and achieve sustainable financial independence. Swissline will donate 10% of our March online sales to help fund the Sewing Center for the Rwandan women and educate the local youth.
"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world" - Nelson Mandela
Momentum Foundation is being developed by a group of global citizens compelled to help those in need and build a better future for all. Momentum believes that youth and women are the agents of change.
Inspired by volunteers in the village of Kabatwa who are committed to giving a voice to the local women and kids, Momentum aims to support their initiatives by offering sewing classes and equipment to young women who have been excluded from the community. There are 90 women and girls between the ages of 14 - 20 who are raising their children alone, struggling as they are unemployed and often without a home. These new-found skills will enable them to get a job in the local community.
Please join us to celebrate International Women’s Day and empower these women together. Let's build a better future for all!
