Enterprise Seychelles Agency organized its first training post-COVID to teach entrepreneurs and individuals how to sow masks. The training was held today 9th July 2020 at SIDOL at Mont Fleuri. The objectives of the facial mask sewing course were as follows:

The CEO of ESA urged the entrepreneurs to take this opportunity to learn new skills to help with the huge demand for facial masks in Seychelles, in view of the current situation we are facing.
