What We Do
Our beneficiaries are mostly housewives, single mothers and underprivileged women who are situated at home because of family commitments, therefore they are unable to commit to a full-time job because of its fixed working hours. Earning any form of income becomes difficult for them. We discovered how each and every one of them needs assistance from many aspects; be it financial, educational or skill-development. There’s a saying that goes “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” This adage is aligned with the mission of KTJ. We train our community to sew corporate gifts and handmade items that are of commercial standards. We believe that providing tailors with the right tools and machineries is the first step to helping them uplift their lives, however without the business acumen of finding orders, tailors can be very discouraged with insufficient incoming orders. This is where KTJ comes into the equation. We created a holistic cycle to enable the community to have a secure and stable income over a longer period of time.
