Afrika Tiss
Promoting craftsmanship

Afrika Tiss is setting up initiatives aimed at promoting craftsmanship as a lever for economic and social development in France and Burkina Faso.

It brings together designers and craftspeople in order to promote the pooling of know-how and the emergence of innovative products.
It opened a hand weaving centre in Ouagadougou in 2014 with a view to promoting locally-grown cotton processing in Burkina Faso as well as Burkinabe know-how and talents.

The Pink Lady® Europe Endowment Fund provided financial support to the project, which aimed to empower 40 craftswomen by allowing them to live on their know-how.

Fair remuneration for their work.
Supporting professionalisation.
A training programme, which starts with an introduction to weaving on small looms.

Des Étoiles et des Femmes
Supporting and developing

The mission of the Des Étoiles et des Femmes (Stars and Women) project is to train, support and develop the employability of women from disadvantaged neighbourhoods through catering.

Located in 7 cities in France.
Each site offers 9-month training courses for 12 women from disadvantaged neighbourhoods.
Each apprentice is mentored by a gourmet or Michelin-starred chef.

In addition to the training aspect, the association assists the apprentices via social support services that help reduce the barriers to employment (transport, accommodation, childcare, etc.). The Pink Lady® Europe Endowment Fund provides financial support for the Marseille section.

SEVAI
Training and promoting

The SEVAI (Society for Education, Village Action and Improvement) programme offers women in rural and isolated villages in India opportunities to emancipate themselves via two programmes.

A professional training programme in computer science, sewing and medical care. These courses then allow the young women to do professional internships. They thus improve their employability in the labour market and are more likely to become financially independent.
The development of Self Help Groups aimed at creating economic activity in the region. The idea is to bring together 12 to 20 women so that they have access to government microcredit at very low rates and therefore start an economic activity.

The Pink Lady® Europe Endowment Fund provides financial support to the Self Help Groups programme in the state of Tamil Nadu, India.
