In many African Countries, for many reasons some Kids live in the Streets without adult supervision. With bad influence and lack of appropriate education, They easily embrace Delinquant’s life and constitue a Danger for themselves and the Society. Another category living in the Streets are the Disabled and Blind Persons. We are convinced that Fashion has the power to change positively their Lives if We teach them a Job in Fashion Industry. This program can help them to take care of themselves and be useful for the Society. We will develop the Brand (Fs)² for those learning Fashion Design, Shoemaking, Accessorists and help them to be a Source of Motivation for the People in the same situation like them before and make their creations access the US Market under AGOA..
