CLOTHES BANK 

Akhuwat Clothes Bank’s project where poor and needy can visit and receive a gift of clothes with great honor, integrity, and love.The clothes are collected from the well-to-do families, they are repaired, they are washed/dry cleaned and then they are packed. The packed cloth is then given as a gift to the needy individual. Akhuwat envisages to collect and, disburse on average over 10,000 pieces of cloth to the under privileged community every month.

This project primarily recruits transgender individuals, promoting dignified employment for this discriminated segment of society.

We are currently receiving donations in SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA

SALIENT FEATURES

These packed clothes are for everyone whoever is in its dire need i.e. White collar students, working men/ women, widows and for their daughter marriages

 

ERADICATING SOCIAL POVERTY

A new concept of “Zero-Rental” borrowing of bridal dresses for needy and poor are available in this shop. 

TAKE AS YOU PLEASE, LEAVE IF YOU WANT

An option of barter trade is also applicable in this shop where anyone in need of specific clothes can barter his/ her unnecessary items. For instance, one shirt can be exchanged against a piece of handkerchief which is unnecessary for him/ her.

 

TRANSGENDER EMPOWERMENT - CREATING EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES 

Another important aspect of Akhuwat Clothes Bank is the engagement of trans-genders in the processing of clothes collected from the donors. Clothes collected from the donors are sorted, repaired, stitched and packed by the trans-genders employed at the organization. Akhuwat Clothes Bank employs trans-genders and provides them an opportunity to earn a decent livelihood
