“Centre Jean Prum”

WSDC – Women Skill Development Centre

The WSCD was established end 2008. It was named after the late Jean Prum, Father of Francois Prum, who is P1000808chairman and founder of Cooperation-Humanitaire-Luxembourg”. He is spearheading the actions of the Luxembourg NGO since the year 1998. In the year 2008 Francois joined hand with “SOS Bahini” and both organizations are to date working as “SISTER-ORGANISATIONS” and this in close cooperation.

With the WSCD we are reaching out to deprived women and we are offering the following programs:

  • Tailoring/sewing/stitching
  • Art (Painting-Batik)P1000820
  • Handicraft from local available materials
  • NFE classes (Non-Formal-Education)
  • A variety of  “Handicraft-Workshops”
  • Art-classes

With the “WSCD” we are providing job-training and non-formal-education. Moreover we are providing “Income-generating-skills”.

The “Art-Classes” are offered to the girls and young women who are fully living under the umbrella of “SOS Bahini” and this with the objective to enhance their “Creativity” and their sense for beauty.

All our programs are offered for free and the material too is provided by us. In some cases, for the purchase of a sewing machine for example, we are offering a micro-credit to help our beneficiaries to establish their own small business.

P1000832More over the beneficiaries from the “WSDC” are invited to participate in the regular “Health-Awareness-Programs” and the “Legal-Awareness-Programs” that are taking place in our “HUB”.

Many have benefitted from the “WSCD” since it was first established in the year 2008 and for many this project is making a big difference in their quality of life.

Merci Mr. Jean Prum
