Green greetings Steemians,
Despite the electricity challenges we are facing, we wish to officially announce the graduation of two our pioneer trainees, Mbom Franca and Ajih Sylvia on Sunday 7th July 2019.
Franca joined @ecodesigns in 2017 and Sylvia joined in 2016 immediately after the creation of @ecodesigns. For over 24 Months, both ladies have effectively acquired the knowledge and skills in textile recycling, fashion designing and green business entrepeneurship.
On sunday, these two ladies will show case some of their finest works as they receive their certificates. They will also share their dreams of how they will continue to make profits while improving the lives of people and the planet.
On sunday, they will become Certified ecoFashion Entrepreneurs who are capable of educating and empowering more women and girls.
Tomorrow, we will publish a detailed graduation program as well as some samples of the products that will be show cased on sunday.
