Stitching a Better Life

The four women who graduated from the intensive designing training program have each embarked on new careers, using these coveted skills. Ayoo Florence has started designing bed sheets which are being transported and sold in Sudan.  Abalo Florence and Okello Christine are receiving clothing orders from their trainer, and are working closely with him until they save enough money to buy their own machines.  Lalam Lucy, who had no tailoring skills before starting the course, is continuing to train under the supervision of her teacher. Not only are each of the creating better lives for themselves and their families, they have gained respect in their homes and community.

Just $25 provides month-long tuition for a woman to study vocational training, such as knitting tailoring or designing.  With these increased skills a Ugandan mother can find work and better provide food, housing and medical care for her family.

Thank you for being a part of giving hope and building brighter futures for familes in Uganda.
