"I used to feel ashamed of myself and thought I can't do anything myself. Back in Saddam's Iraq, we had to produce almost everything ourselves due to the sanctions regime. But I never believed when people told me I did a good job. It didn't feel honest. Now I'm confident that people mean it when they say such things. It makes me proud to see the joy when they see how their old shirt has become a boxer short."
Huda works at Van Hulley - a place where women that want to work but don't have the necessary papers for their ambition in the labour market gain experience and follow education. They turn your old shirts into boxer shorts.
