For ten years now, Fundación Paz para la No violencia has carried out an ambitious project called Cosiendo Redes. It is a series of alliances and programs that have as aim to train vulnerable people in textile trades, thus promoting their labor inclusion within the sector.
As from the connection with different companies, Cosiendo Redes has already achieved that 7,000 people receive education on several sectors, with more than 1,400 successful work insertions.
"Our goal is that our students can have access to a stable job, whether as an employee or as a freelance, assembling his/her own production unit, and with tools given by professionals specialized in the textile industry", states the Project Coordinator, Bach. Ma. Gisele Chairrasco.
This year Cosiendo Redes will take part for the second time in Emitex, the exhibition that gathers all the textile industry main players and that will be carried out on April 9-11 in Costa Salguero Center. There, they will show the work they are doing and will take advantage for creating new relationships and alliances between the exhibiting companies and the professionals that visit the fair.
The technical trainings that are offered within the project are totally free of charge and include areas such as: machine operator, pattern making, printing and embroidery, corsetry, among others. They will also include educational activities that range from how to generate a CV up to the preparation for an interview.
Besides, Cosiendo Redes develops a follow-up program from which it is examined, approximately every six months, how the work relationship has evolved, thus creating a containment bridge between the business professionals and the students. Furthermore, to drive students to develop independently, there will be extracurricular workshops for those who have their own enterprise and seek to improve it, for example, in Page 2 Emitex International Trade Fair of Suppliers for the Garment Industry Costa Salguero Center Buenos Aires, April 9 - 11, 2019
Facing the complex situation the sector is undergoing, Chairrasco states that "though we are in a quite critical moment for the textile industry, it is the right time to receive education, training and seek a job that meets the necessary work guarantees."
Emitex will take place on April 9 - 11, 2019 in Centro Costa Salguero, Buenos Aires, Argentina.
The exhibition is only for businessmen and professionals of the sector. With an invitation: free of charge. People under 16 years will not be admitted, even if attending with an adult.
