The sewing center students have already learned how to sew clothes, so now they are working on handbags and ladies’ shawls. The trainer is very excited along with students. The trainer shared, “This is what was in my mind to teach the girls. Now they cannot only stitch clothes, but they can also make the other things.”
The students are continuing to practice by working on their assignments in our computer academy. They are nearly finished with the course and they will be receiving their certificates after the Christmas holidays. The students are now preparing for final exams, and the trainer is doing his best to teach.
Farmers are ready to sow the mustard and fodder it. The land is already prepared after cultivating. The farmers work hard to ensure there is enough water for the crops. They are hoping they will get more water.
The sewing center is providing the best skills training to women, enabling them to make a difference in the community as they help their families. We are on the track to empower the women to live better lives.
*Mariam belongs to a community of a certain religion. She was never allowed to go outside, and when she finished her religious education, she still never went out. Mariam’s family allowed her to be part of this sewing center, and now she is receiving training. Mariam shared, “First of all, I learned love and discipline from this center. Before, I never learned to love and respect others. Now that I am part of this center, I think of myself as an ambassador of mercy and love. I am encouraging other girls to join this stitching center. It has developed my life in skills and manner.”
Agriculture constitutes the largest sector of our economy. The majority of the population, directly or indirectly, is dependent on this sector. We are uplifting the community by helping to provide the farming project at OM Land. We are also planning to start fish farming at OM Land. This will also provide resources for many people.
After the drought, water is now available, and the farmer planted new crops. Last month, we invited the agriculture consultant for an awareness seminar about water and fertilizer. The seminar taught farmers how to conserve the fertilizer and water.
Through computer technology, we are equipping the youth for a better future. Many students have already completed the training course and we are still receiving more students.
