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,

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.

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 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, 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 now have an opportunity to provide a good income for themselves and their families. Your gift is helping women like Rani.

When Rani heard about our tailoring school, she immediately applied to be part of the program. She comes for a very poor family, but she had a passion to learn and was very excited to join the class. Her family was very supportive and encouraged her to go to through the tailoring program so she can learn embroidery and sew dresses and other clothes.

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.”

Rani is very grateful for the generous support of donors like you. Thank you! This was made possible because of you. Your gift makes a difference and it's transforming the lives of women like Rani.

Dear Friend,

Thank you for your support of providing a mom in India with a sewing machine. It's such a life changing gift that helps a whole family. There are 48 women who are currently enrolled in the tailoring schools, and they will spend six months learning how to sew and stitch.

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 now have an opportunity to provide a good income for themselves and their families. Your gift is helping women like Kavya!

Kavya heard about our tailoring school and applied to be part of the program. Her family is very poor and her husband spends all of his wages drinking and gambling. She needed to help her family and Kavya said the tailoring training gave her great hope for the future.

When Kavya successfully finished her training, she got a sewing machine and was able to start supporting her family. She was so happy, and she also started to see a change in her husband's life. Right now, Kavya earns enough money to provide for her entire family.

This was made possible because of you. Your gift makes a difference and brings change to people suffering from poverty.

Dear Friend,

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

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 now have an opportunity to provide a good income for themselves and their families.

Our moms mean a lot to us. They care for us, feed us, and make sure we're safe. However, many moms in India struggle to care for their families because of poverty. Your gift is changing their lives! You are giving them sewing training that will provide a sustainable income.

A gift of a sewing machine does so much to help families in need. It helped a woman like Sammangi start her own home tailoring business that will support her family!

Sammangi has two children. Her husband works but he doesn't earn enough money for them to live on. They couldn't afford to send their kids to school and life was a struggle. But with a sewing machine, Sammangi is now able to sew clothes and earn an extra income that will provide a better life for her entire family. She is so happy she can now send her two children to school.

When you honor a mom in India with a gift a sewing machine, you change her life forever. Thank you for all you do.
