Project Report | Oct 19, 2016
Sew Far, So Good!

By Eva Walters | Project Leader

We start this update with some very good news, Maison Janet Bokwa was officially opened this summer! It was a truly joyous occasion and a real sign of the busyness to come.

Since the opening of the girls’ long term home, they have been thriving. The photo shows some of them on their first day of the new school year, looking forward to lots of learning!

We have also partnered with the US based organisation First Step Initiative (FSI) in Maison Janet Bokwa to bring local women and Kimbilio carers an exciting new venture. FSI are providing training to learn how to sew using a machine. On completion of the course, each person will receive a sewing machine. We hope this enables them to set up a business in their own communities and to filter the knowledge to their own networks of friends. The project relies heavily on using these resourceful women’s ingenuity to help enhance and support the local community. We hope to be able to share more of its success with you over the coming year.

We’re sorry that we haven't kept you up to date as much as we wanted to, but as you can see we have been keeping busy. Your financial support is what enables these success stories to happen and we thank you so much for it. The cost of continuing to run the girls’ long term house, for education, food, clothing and other necessities, is a continual need. Please continue to remember Kimbilio in your charitable giving. Thank you again!
