Empowering Underprivileged Women

Komuniti Tukang Jahit is an accredited social enterprise that wants to empower B40 Malaysian women, which include single mothers, single women, underprivileged women, stay at home mothers and even the OKU group. And they do that by training and providing job opportunities to these women as they work from home. They focus on making mostly making corporate gifts, customised sewn items or even tourist souvenirs. They sit down with us as they share the true story behind running a social enterprise that no one talks about.
