What do refugees need?

What do refugees need?

Although the US offers them safety and a new start, refugees often arrive with no resources or guidance. They need our help accessing available resources and adapting to their new home.




We teach refugee women how to sew and work in a business environment.



Educational programs, mentoring, counseling and job placement services are available to each woman at VTC.



All refugees earn fair wages for their time and the clothing they produce.



VTC is a non-profit social business. Our sales will sustain our operations allowing your donations to be directly invested in programs that impact refugee women.  Like any business, start-ups cost. Your donation today will help us reach sustainability sooner.
