CLOTHES BANK DRIVE
We are in the process of revamping our collection system. We may have a local collection point in Phoenix coming up. Please hang tight with your donations and as soon as we are ready we will circle back.
Akhuwat’s Clothes Bank creates a space that the poor and needy can visit to receive a gift of clothes with great honor, integrity, and love. The clothes are collected from financially privileged families before they are repaired, washed or dry cleaned, and then packed. The packed clothes are then given as a gift to individuals in need.
Akhuwat aims to collect and disburse an average of over 10,000 items of clothing to underprivileged communities every month.
This project primarily recruits transgender individuals, promoting dignified employment for this segment of society.
These packed clothes are for anyone who is in dire need, including white-collar students, working men and women, widows, and families in need of clothing for their daughters’ marriages.
ERADICATING SOCIAL POVERTY
With a new concept of “zero-rental” borrowing, we provide bridal dresses for the needy and poor.
TAKE AS YOU PLEASE, LEAVE IF YOU WANT
Anyone in need of specific clothes can trade his/her unnecessary items. For instance, a visitor could exchange an unneeded handkerchief for a much-needed shirt.
TRANSGENDER EMPOWERMENT - CREATING EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES
Another important aspect of Akhuwat Clothes Bank is the engagement of transgender workers. One collected from the donors, clothes are sorted, repaired, stitched and packed by transgender employees, providing these community members with the opportunity to earn a decent livelihood.
