Threads of Courage is a community project by Fei Yue Family Service Centre targeted at individuals who fall through the cracks. Unable to find or secure permanent employment because of health or family circumstances, these individuals are keen and motivated to learn skills and earn a supplementary income for their families. Threads of Courage equips individuals with sewing skills to make products and allow these individuals to sell the items and keep the profits.
Threads of Courage believes in empowering these individuals to take control and change their situations. They believe in providing sustainable forms of help that allows client to adopt the “I can do it” attitude.
Threads of Courage has reached out to 46 participants up to March 2018. They are on the look out for more corporate orders and opportunities for booth set-ups to increase their income.
