LifeStitches fighting AIDS Stigma


The US project team is about to leave to spend two weeks at the Arua Uganda LifeStitches project site. The great news is that we will be there for the new sewing Workshop building dedication March 5, 2011.

Many , many thanks to all our donors that made this important milestone happen.  The new Workshop which is located on the Arua Regional hospital grounds will triple access to sewing machines and teaching for new HIV positive PMTCT mothers joining the group. Our membership is up since September from 35 to 50 members!.

Besides the building dedication, the US team,  will be spending our time setting up sewing training classes, and organizing the workshop production by building capacity amongst workshop leaders.  We will also be returning with some interviews with workshop members, talking to us about  how being involved in the Lifestitches Workshop changed their lives and decreased AIDS Stigma. There will also be fresh photos of the building dedication.

The US volunteer team travels and pays for their own expenses and donate all time spent on the project.
