Dear Friend,

Your generous gift to provide a woman in India with a sewing machine has made a huge difference. Thank you for your support and for empowering women to rise out of poverty.

There are 48 women who are currently enrolled in the tailoring schools, and they will spend six months learning how to sew and stitch. After graduating from the rigorous training, they will each get their very own sewing machine so they can start their own home tailoring business. 

In India, other than day-labor, 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 women now have an opportunity to provide a good income for themselves and their families. Your gift is helping women like Sakshi.

One of Sakshi’s aunts told her about our tailoring school, she immediately applied to be part of the program. Even though she had a passion to learn, she had dropped out of school to care for her younger siblings. Knowing that soon she would need to marry, her family encouraged her to go to through the tailoring program so she can learn embroidery and sew dresses and other clothes. This would provide money for her wedding, and after marriage she would be able to continue stitching clothes.

Sakshi graduated after six months of tailoring training. She understood the great advantage she had when the school gave Sakshi her very own sewing machine. She still had a good relationship with her old school teachers so she approached them and was able to get a job stitching school uniforms for the local school.

Sakshi is saving her income for marriage. “In India it is very costly for a girl to get married, because I have this business I will be able to help my family with the costs.” Her mother chimed in, “not only is she helping pay for these bills, but the boy we found is excited that his wife will be able to earn an income.” Since it is a home based business she will be able to continue working even when they have children.

Sakshi is very grateful for your generous support. Thank you! Her good fortune was made possible because of you. Your gift makes a difference and it's transforming the lives of women like Sakshi.

Sincerely,

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.

I'm excited to share this story about Malissa.

Malissa grew up in a small village. She had to quit school after the 7th grade because there was no other school for her to attend. She was forced to get married at a young age and immeditely started a family. With little education and no other skills, Malissa couldn't find much work. He husband works as a day laborer, and it's difficult work that barely brings enought money for their family of four. Malissa wanted a better life for her son and daughter so that she can send them to school. She was so excited when she learned about the tailoring school because it was her chance to earn a better living.

After months of training, Malissa recently graduated and was given her very own sewing machine. Now she is able to start her very own business and sew clothes for people in her village. Her kids are in school and doing well in their studies. They were very excited that their mom graduated from the tailoring school. Malissa is happy that she can now support her family with the extra income.

Thank you for helping people like Malissa get a sewing machine. You changed her life forever!

Sincerely, 

John Sparks

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!

Your gift is helping women like Matta. 

Matta was so excited when she got a spot in the tailoring school. She was in deep financial trouble with no way to support her family. When she heard about India Partners’ tailoring school she was eager to get in—and she did! 

Matta graduated after six months of training and learning. Your gifts helped Matta receive her very own sewing machine. With the skills she has learned, Matta is now able to sew clothes for the people in her village.

She earns an income that is enough to support her family’s needs and is very grateful for the support of donors like you.

“I have peace in my heart because you gave me hope to support my family,” says Matta.

Today, Matta is happily stitching clothes for her family and her customers. 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.

Rani graduated after six months of training and learning. She was so excited when the school gave Rani her very own sewing machine. She never expected it and was filled with so much joy.

Rani has one son, and she was so happy that she could provide a better life for him. Every day she works at home on her sewing machine. People in the community often come over and bring her material so she can sew clothes for them. Rani earns a good income and is able to support her whole family.

“Learning how to sew at India Partners’ tailoring school has been a great blessing for me and my family,” says Rani. “I’m able to support them, and every member of my family is very happy about it.”
