Project Report | May 7, 2015
A mother gets a sewing machine!

By John Sparks | President, India Partners

Dear Friend,

Your generous gift to provide a mom in India with a sewing machine has been life-changing. Thank you for your support and for empowering women to rise out of poverty.

There are 48 women who just graduated from the tailoring school. After graduating from the rigorous training, each woman received her very own sewing machine so she can start a tailoring business from home.  This project also started it’s new class of women so there are 48 new students who are enrolled in the six-month course. They will spend the next few months learning how to sew and stitch.

In India, unemployment is very high, especially among women living in the rural areas. 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 and wives now have an opportunity to provide a good income for themselves and their families.

Your gift is helping women like Mary.

Mary and her family were facing a lot of financial struggles. Her husband didn't have a job and it was becoming increasingly difficult to support a family that included two children. Her heart broke because she wanted the very best for them, but they were struggling.

When Mary found out about the sewing school through the people in her village, she was filled with joy and excitment. She enrolled in the tailoring school and studied hard for the next six months. Mary learned how to sew, stitch, and was equipped with basic business practices. When she graduated she received a sewing machine that changed her life forever.

Today mary earns a steady income that is able to provide for the basic needs of her family. She is grateful for your support.

Thank you for giving her a chance to succeed! Your gift has made a big impact in not only her life but in the life of others as well.

Mother's Day is coming up and you can honor the special mom in your life by helping a woman in India. Your gift will help more mothers like Mary get a sewing machine. Give today!

Sincerely,

John Sparks
