According to the Department of Statistics Malaysia, Sarawak is one of the poorest states, which has worsened due to the pandemic. Women in Sarawak living in poverty often lack the resources needed to live empowered lives.
This month’s Global Sadaqah campaign is two-fold, helping poor single mothers become entrepreneurs and saving the environment. WormingUp will train Sarawak women with sewing skills to produce up-cycled grocery bags from used cloth and plastic. This initiative will help these women extra income to feed their families.
Your donation will go towards the operations, equipment and resources needed for the training programme.
You can help by making a donation today by contributing directly to Global Sadaqah via the HelloGold app. Start with sending just RM10 in gold to firstname.lastname@example.org.
