Dear Friend,

You are amazing! We can't thank you enough for your generosity and compassion in helping a mom in India find a way to support her family. A sewing machine may seem like a simple gift, but it has been life-changing in so many ways.

Thanks to you, there are 7 tailoring schools with 84 women currently enrolled. You are having such an incredible impact on all of these women and families!

One of the moms who recently received a sewing machine is Durgabhavani. She has 3 daughters and they often struggled without their most basic needs. Durgabhavani used to work in the fields with her husband. They were both day laborers, but the work was so hard it started to affect her health.

When Durgabhavani joined our tailoring school she was so happy. She learned how to sew many different types of clothing for children and women. When she graduated she received her very own sewing machine.

"Now I can stitch clothing and I'm able to earn money to support my family along with my husband," says Durgabhavani.

Your gift means so much to a poor family in India. You are empowering a mom to support her children and earn a sustainable income.

"Thank you for your great help in providing me with sewing training and giving me a sewing machine," says Durgabhavani. Without you none of this would be possible!

Sincerely,

John Sparks

Dear Friend,

Mother's Day is a chance to celebrate moms all over the world. Thanks to your gift, a mom in India received a brand new sewing machine that is enabling her to support her family.

Your generosity means so much to moms like Padmavathi. She has four children, two sons and two daughters. Her husband was the sole provider of the family but his income wasn't enough to take care of everyone. They often struggled without their basic needs. Having only a 5th grade education, Padmavathi had very little options for work. It was also too hard to work and look after her four children.

Padmavathi was so excited when she was accepted into the tailoring school. She trained for 6 months and learned how to sew many types of clothing. Padmavathi also attended empowerment classes that gave her the confidence to stand firm during difficult times in her life. When she graduated she received a sewing machine that changed her life forever.

Today Padmavathi is now able to work from home and earn an income for her family. She sews clothes for others as well as her family. Sewing has given Padmavathi a wonderful opportunity to rise up and out of poverty.

Thanks to you, there are 7 tailoring schools with 84 women currently enrolled. You are having such an incredible impact on all of these women and families!

This Mother's Day, I hope you consider giving again to help more moms like Padmavathi care for their families. Your gift of $100 can provide one sewing machine to a mother in need.

Sincerely,

Thank you for helping women like Rajeswari

Dear friend,

Thank you for changing the life of a mother in India! Your gift of a sewing machine and tailoring school has empowered women like Rajeswari to provide for her family.

Like many women in India, Rajeswari had a limited education and no job to support her family. She only went to school until the 7th grade and did not have many skills to pursue a good career.

“We had financial struggles and I needed a short training program to get a certificate so that I could get a good job. I was so excited when I got admitted to the tailoring school” says Rajeswari.

Because of your generosity and compassion, this past quarter Rajeswari and 84 other women learned how to make all kinds of clothing and are able to support their families. Learning how to sew changed her life. She is so grateful to you for her wonderful training.

Thank you again for your compassion towards women like Rajeswari. To help another woman in need, give a sewing machine today.

 

Sincerely,

Dear friend,

“Now I am bold enough to lead my life with this free sewing machine.”

Thank you for giving Cheppula the opportunity to change the lives of her and her children. Because of you, Cheppula was able to receive training, and upon her graduation, a treadle sewing machine to allow her to provide for her family.

She says, “I have two children who are 2 years and 4 years old. My husband died from tuberculosis recently, and he was only the bread giver to my family. He never allowed me to go for work outside, and he maintained everything sufficiently for us. He was a daily wage worker in a market yard.  But after his death everything became upside down. My father-in-law and mother-in-law are very old, and unable to work anymore.  They too are suffering with ill health, and could not help feed us. I was deeply struggled to get rid of this situation.

I joined in the school and successfully completed my training and acquired the sewing skills. Now I am bold enough to lead my life with this free sewing machine. I will work hard and gain for my children and make them to study. My honest gratitude for your support.”

There are currently more than 80 women enrolled in the tailoring schools. Each batch of classes brings so much hope to these women. They know that once they graduate, they’ll have a skill they can use to help their families, and it’s all thanks to you!

You are making a difference for a mom in India!

Dear friend,

“I was so happy I had the opportunity to go through the tailoring classes,” said Satyavathi.

Thank you for giving mothers like Satyavathi a free tailoring education. Because of you, Satyavathi was able to receive a treadle sewing machine along with a certificate of completion right after graduation.

Satyavathi used to face a lot of financial struggles in her family. Her husband was unable to find consistent work, which made it difficult to support their children.

When she was accepted into India Partners’ tailoring school she was so happy and excited.

“This training was a great blessing. I’m able to work and support my family,” said Satyavathi. “I’m grateful for your love and support.” 

There are currently more than 60 women enrolled in the tailoring schools. Each batch of classes brings so much hope to these women. They know that once they graduate, they’ll have a skill they can use to help their families, and it’s all thanks to you!

You are making a difference for a mom in India!
