Brooklyn’s 'Black Girls Sew' is a non-profit camp that teaches children valuable sewing and design skills. Camp founder Hekima Hapa explains that sewing is not only a fun activity for children, it can also function as the foundation for a lifelong career. Whether it’s working in fashion or starting a business, the camp helps children learn how sewing can be a valuable trade.
Black Girls Sew provides workshops, classes and summer camps to teach children about sewing and design. The non-profit camp is targeted at students of all ages and all levels of experience. The ultimate goal of the program is to use sewing and design as a way of teaching fundamental life skills such as creativity, imagination and resourcefulness.
Not only is the camp empowering for children interested in fashion, but it also fosters eco-friendly practices. By focusing on issues on sustainability and recycling, the children gain a broad understanding of the fashion industry at large.
