The process is to teach English and Sewing to the women. Artisan graduates go on to work independently or are hired from the classes to become seamstresses at Re:new where they create beautiful products from upcycled materials. The skill level of Re:new seamstresses results in high-quality gifts like handmade aprons, garment bags, toiletries bags, and custom products.
Re:new was founded by a team of Christian women, for whom the mission of creating a space for refugee women to thrive represents a tangible way to serve refugees in response to biblical teachings. Re:new’s vision is to be a society that values and seeks out flourishing relationships with its refugee neighbors.
