Creative Recycle to help a small community. Salerno.
Nove Onlus gave its support to the small tailoring workshop Sant’Andrea nell’Annunziatella in Salerno, which offers work opportunities to women of the most vulnerable social classes.
The Associazione Sant’Andrea nell’Annunziatella assists women living in impoverished conditions in the historic town of Salerno. The association’s main focus is on a cutting and sewing workshop that makes use of recycled materials. In 2013, Nove Onlus, in addition to providing the workshop with new equipment and materials, financed tailoring courses for 20 women in need, including a few who were illiterate. This assistance has allowed its beneficiaries to obtain a small income, to train other women, and to provide the community with an affordable tailoring service.
In 2014, Nove Onlus supported the workshop through the purchase of small quantities of handbags made from recycled materials, which have been used to promote its activities. In 2015 and 2016, Nove Onlus donated new machines and financed an additional course focused on making the products more commercially competitive.
