Description

The fashion sector is nowadays one of the most polluters sectors in the world. Tons of clothes are thrown away in good conditions every day, so why not give them a new life? In parallel, in Portugal, and around all Europe the employability of women over 50 is highly reduced. Women who are perfectly capable and motivated to continue contributing to the labor market but whose age becomes an impediment to finding a job. Why not join both and create an amazing impactful project?

In this program, volunteers will join a non-profit and will help and support the local host center in their daily tasks. The tasks are built around designing and modeling clothes models, giving support on their production and facilitation of workshops always in English. The goal is always transforming used clothing, obtained by the staff or donated by third parties, into “vintage” inspired clothing. All these activities are developed under the supervision of the organization’s staff and the woman workers, integrated into the schedule of the project.
