Brother offers job training courses using its sewing machines as teaching materials

Brother International S.A. (PTY) Ltd. (BI S.A.) has been providing job training courses in cooperation with Avisa, a non-profit organization which helps people get employment, since 2017.

The areas surrounding BI S.A. have been facing the challenge of making the lives of their residents financially stable. With the aim of providing job assistance to them with Brother's products, BI S.A., jointly with Avisa, started job training courses using Brother's sewing machines as teaching tools. In these courses, named the "Brother Avisa Training Center," participants attend weekly classes held within BI S.A.'s premises for four months and learn about the repair and maintenance of sewing machines as well as sewing skills. Many of the graduates of this center succeeded in getting jobs by having a lot of practice and using their acquired skills.
