They will learn to prepare different types of dishes some which are prepared for commercial purposes or class projects. Tailoring Tailoring involves needle work where learners use their hands and sewing machines to draft different patterns depending on what item is to be made. They will learn to make dresses, aprons, skirts, petty coats, sweaters and many others. Apart from sewing or mending their clothes, they gain knowledge of how to be self-reliant. These skills prepare children to future entrepreneurs as they are income generating skills.
