Sewing gives women sustainable incomes

Teaching a woman how to sew is one of the most life-changing things you can do to help a woman living in poverty. Many are uneducated and earn little to no wages. With a valuable skill, these women have an opportunity to provide a good income for themselves and their families

There are 48 women who are currently enrolled in the tailoring schools, and they will spend six months learning how to sew and stitch.

Women like Santhi are grateful for your support. Santhi recently completed her education at a tailoring school, and she’s very happy to have a stable job. Prior to going to school, Santhi experienced a lot of tragedy in her life. She was married and was expecting her first child. However, after a few months of marriage Santhi’s husband felt ashamed to be married to Santhi, who was from a lower caste. He didn’t want the child, so he severely injured Santhi in the stomach, and the baby sadly died in the womb. Devastated and depressed, Santhi was also kicked out of her home and had nowhere to go until a kind married couple took her in.

Santhi was fully dependent on them until she found a way to make a living. She got accepted into the sewing school and after graduating she started working at a tailoring shop for women. Santhi has great attention to detail and the garments she sews are always beautiful. Although she has faced a lot of hardship, Santhi is so grateful for your gracious support. She is happily earning a good income and she enjoys her work.

Thank you for your compassion and generosity in helping women like Santhi.

Because of your help, 48 women received sewing training at tailoring schools in India. Many of these women come from very poor families and don't have jobs. But you have given them valuable skills and so much hope. The women recently graduated from the tailoring schools and receieved their very own sewing machine.

Since these women have graduated, a new batch of students has arrived. 48 women are currently enrolled in the tailoring schools, where they will spend six months learning how to sew and stitch.

Women like Rajini are grateful for your support. Rajini didn't have a job and her husband didn't have a permanent job, so they constantly faced financial struggles. It was hard to support their family. They have three children and, at times, it was difficult to afford the fees to send all of their children to school.

Rajini found hope when she joined the tailoring school. She gained tremendous confidence in herself and learned how to sew. Rajini is able to not only sew clothes for her family, but she also sews clothes for others. When she graduated she received her very own sewing machine, and she is now able to sew and earn an income to support her husband and three children. Rajini is so grateful for the opportunity she has been given to attend the tailoring school. She is very thankful that she now has valuable skills and a sewing machine that will greatly help her whole family.

Thank you for your compassion and generosity! If you would like to help women like Rajini, please give another gift today. You are not just helping one person, but you are helping an entire family.

But you have given them valuable skills and so much hope. The women recently graduated from the tailoring schools and receieved their very own sewing machine.

Women like Sundara are grateful for your support. Sundara had a very limited education and didn't have a job. She has two children, and after her husband left them it became difficult to support her family.

Fortunately, Sundara got accepted into the tailoring school, and she worked very hard and learned how to sew. Sundara is very happy because after she graduated, she got her very own sewing machine and was able to start her own tailoring business. She now earns enough money to send her two children to school and provide a daily income for her family.

Thank you for your compassion and generosity! If you would like to help other mothers like Sundara, please give another gift today.
