Sewing machine provides poor family with an income

Sundara is now able to provide for her family

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.

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.
