The SSECASA management received a grant funding from the Multicultural SA in

July 2016 to start tailoring training program with main focus on the women

(elderly, young and including men).

The aim of this tailoring training program is to provide tailoring skills and knowledge

for the women in South Sudan Equatorian Communities Association in South


This project will allow women and young people to establish networks with other

Equatorian sub-communities, African communities and the South Australian society

at large.

We believe that some of the young people and women will develop proper interest in tailoring and gradually be able to enrol into TAFE for further studies.

This initiative can also strengthen the women’s communication skills, self-confidence, and self-reliance.

The initial stage of this project will provide an ongoing opportunity and platform for Equatorian women who are not in paid employment to be able to gain relevant skills through the training whilst the second phase will focus on training program open to all South Sudanese, African Communities and Australian society.

The project is entirely run and facilitated by volunteers including the SSECASA executive team and the instructors.
