Many women living in poverty in India have little education and limited skills. Your gift is making a difference because it's giving a woman a chance to support her family. Unlike mothers who work 12 hours a day in the fields, sewing at a home-based business enables a mother to care for her child while still earning a decent living wage.
Yesamma is one of the women your gift is helping. She recently received a sewing machine after graduating from the tailoring school this past June. Yesamma along with 78 other women completed their tailoring education and they all received a free sewing machine. Thank you for being a blessing to these women!
Yesamma is a widow and mother of two children. The stress of raising her family on her own weighed heavily on her. She could barely provide food for her family every day. When she was given the chance to join the tailoring school she was filled with hope. She worked hard for six months and learned how to sew.
"Today, I can stitch clothes and earn money to support my family," says Yesamma. "The training is a blessing to me and I am grateful to India Partners for this wonderful training and also for the certificate and sewing machine," says Yesamma.
Because of your compassion, you are helping women like Yesamma provide for her family. Thank you for changing her life! To help another woman in need, give a sewing machine today.

Santha is a recent graduate who received a sewing machine. She is happy that she can start her own tailoring business to help her family.
Santha and her family struggled financially. She and her husband had a difficult time supporting their two children with a limited income. Her husband works as a daily laborer. It's not a permanent job because he only works whenever there is a job available. They couldn't afford to send their children to school and Santha wanted to do something to help her family.
When Santha heard about the tailoring school in her village, she applied for it and got accepted. After months of training, she now has the skills to earn an income to help her family. With her sewing machine, she sews clothes and is able to earn enough money to take care of her family and send her children to school!
