Crafting Futures Myanmar will support the transformation of Saunders Weaving and Vocational Institute (SWVI) into a Centre of Excellence through an innovative pilot model, which will be adapted to 13 other schools nationwide.

Working with the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, the Myanmar Small Scale Industries Department, Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Irrigation and Plymouth College of Art, the project will develop the skills of teachers, young women and professionals and work towards the sustainable growth of the textile sector through education, cultural revitalization and a social business approach. With integrated project research and learning, this project aims to effectively overcome barriers preventing the textile industry in Myanmar from providing inclusive economic opportunities.
