About SEW

SEW (Supporting + Empowering Women) is a social enterprise that employs HIV+ women in Arusha, Tanzania. SEW seeks to end the stigma associated with HIV by demonstrating that HIV+ women are resilient, industrious and capable.

SEW employees are paid double the award wage, superannuation, sick leave and all other benefits under Tanzanian law. SEW also covers 80% of employee medical expense. All profits are re-invested into providing our sewing mamas with additional skill development through sewing training, English classes and health/nutrition lessons.

In 2013 SEW launched an exclusive range with Zoe Elizabeth that received an overwhelming response. We are looking forward to extending this range and releasing new accessories and garments. If you would like to purchase items from this exclusive limited edition collection please email zoe@zoeelizabeth.com.au
