Mutur Eco-Sewing Centre
In 2019, a dynamic young Sri Lankan Jesuit established a sewing centre in the city of Mutur to support women. That Jesuit received financial support from a Japanese organization called GNADAA that helps low-income group of women through “social fashion projects.” That organization develops sustainable business activities to provide regular incomes to women. GNADAA provides sewing machines, sewing material and sewing training courses to develop the skills of the women involved in the project. Eco-products are then shipped to Japan and the profits made from selling the bags sustain the charitable activities of the GNADAA organization. Unfortunately the Mutur project collapsed in the beginning of 2020 as the young Jesuit faced opposition to the development of his social activities.
