OTJIWARONGO, 25 JAN (NAMPA) A new sewing community project called the Otjiwarongo Clothing Production Project was launched at the town on Friday.
Officiating at the event, Otjiwarongo Constituency Councillor, Julius Neumbo explained that his office in 2018 generated about N.dollars 130 000 that was used to start the clothing production project.
He said the money generated, was then used to buy eight sewing machines, materials and different equipment for the community project.
He added that the project started manufacturing school uniforms for local schools on 16 January 2019 with five sets of uniforms that have already been sold to school learners.
This is commendable and if all of us can support it, I am sure many people will survive from this project, stressed Neumbo.
The councillor then urged members of the project not to despair, but to work very hard, manufacture quality products and offer decent customer care to all clients placing their orders.
Chairperson of the Otjiwarongo Clothing Production Project, Batseba Ndjoze, informed the gathering that the project has a group of 10 women, all from Otjiwarongo.
We started to manufacture school uniforms last week Wednesday and we have a lot of orders still pilling, she said.
The project, she continued looks promising and the group has demonstrated commitment and dedication to work without being paid.
The group has plans to manufacture different types of dresses as requested by clients and mostly targeting women, Ndjoze noted.
The project will manufacture uniforms for learners from Rogate Primary School (PS), Otjiwarongo Senior Secondary School, Spes Bona PS and Monica Geingos Junior Secondary School.
