Sewing machine for a mom

Thanks for giving a sewing machine

Dear Friend,

There are 48 women who are currently enrolled in the tailoring schools, and they will spend six months learning how to sew and stitch.

Many of these women are mothers who have struggled to find ways to support their families. Often times women living in poverty are uneducated and earn little to no wages.  With a valuable skill like sewing, these mothers now have an opportunity to provide a good income for themselves and their families.

Our moms mean a lot to us. They care for us, feed us, and make sure we're safe. However, many moms in India struggle to care for their families because of poverty. Your gift is changing their lives! You are giving them sewing training that will provide a sustainable income.

A gift of a sewing machine does so much to help families in need. It helped a woman like Sammangi start her own home tailoring business that will support her family!

Sammangi has two children. Her husband works but he doesn't earn enough money for them to live on. They couldn't afford to send their kids to school and life was a struggle. But with a sewing machine, Sammangi is now able to sew clothes and earn an extra income that will provide a better life for her entire family. She is so happy she can now send her two children to school.

When you honor a mom in India with a gift a sewing machine, you change her life forever. Thank you for all you do.

Sincerely,
John Sparks
