Social Inclusion

 
Creation of a sewing club in Porto, to combat the isolation of women aged over 50 living in situations of loneliness, apathy and lacking incentives in their lives. In the club women are supported by designers to transform used clothing, obtained by the women themselves or by third parties, into high quality vintage clothing for sale. The intention is to work on the selfesteem of the women and also to reduce their social isolation and generate revenues to enable them to be self-sufficient.
