What We Do
FWH Creations provides the funding for intensive courses in tailoring skills, embroidery and pattern making, enabling team members to begin developing any special talents. Our heart is to extend these opportunities in the local community and provide top-quality training for increasing numbers of vulnerable people. By training them to a high standard, they will be ready to start work and become financially independent.

The communities we work with in Bengaluru are multilingual and many of the girls speak three or four South Indian languages in their daily lives. With English being a vital language for further education and modern business in India, we are committed to funding regular English classes for the Trainees, covering written and spoken English, to broaden their future career prospects and life opportunities.
Encourage completion of school exams
The majority of the Trainees left school before completing their vital 10th Standard exams, equivalent to the British GCSE. These exams are essential for progressing on to further studies that would open the door to many more professional opportunities. Several Trainees expressed a desire to complete their 10th Standard studies through evening and weekend classes. So FWH Creations supports them to complete their exams.
Nowadays computer skills are essential, so FWH Creations provide the funding for computer classes which enables the trainees to use modern equipment. Rhada, one of the girls from the local slum communityy, is now using her own computer purchased by FWH Creations.
Provide Access to Further Education
We are very keen to further education for our Trainees, both in academic and vocational fields, so they can fulfil their own ambitions and desires. A highlight of this commitment so far has been Production Manager Lydia’s success on a Business Entrepreneurship Diploma where she graduated top of the class, winning investment funding for her planned family poultry business. More recently Rhada has successfully been appointed as the production mmanager after she received in-house training in pattern cutting and management.
FWH Creations is committed to the personal and social development of each person in the training programmes and we provide practical and emotional support when times get hard, be it struggles with family relationships or emergency support for healthcare and housing needs. An hour a week is taken out of the busy work schedule to provide an opportunity for the women to share their challenges and encourage each other. As well as using the local facilities for support, professional experts are contacted when help or advice is needed in matters of mental or physical abuse, healthcare or financial management.
We adapt and work with local communities striving for sustainable incomes and long-term employment through education and development of skills. Consequently, through our work and successful development, Jacobswell, the production house in Bengaluru, is now completely independent and fully-owned by the local Indian women employees, which is an incredible achievement!
