Training Success - Tailoring Trainees Show Off Their Skills

Hard at work - tailoring trainees
Hard at work - tailoring trainees

We are delighted to share a progress / success story: The tailoring training has been effective and the trainees can now sew some styles as shown in the included photos and those available on Flickr.   The trainees started with Baby Dress Making, Straight Skirt, Trousers, fitting with round skirt, Midi with satin in front, Balloon style with six pieces skirt, including cluster draw thread Midi.  It's encouraging to see the work they have done and the warm smiles on their faces - and you helped make this happen!  See photos on Flickr.

Here are a few sentences from a report filed by Joshua, the Director of Door of Hope:

"We want you to know that your support have given hope to people and has impacted a lot of lives in diverse ways.  We hope that more people will continue to support your effort to make the world a better place. I join the people in the Wellington community to say "thanks a million times"."

As you can see from some of the photos, the building is incomplete and we would appreciate your best donation today to help us complete it. This would help us expand the work even further - providing more opportunities for training in Hair Dressing, Gara tie dying, and Catering

Upcoming Father's Day Gift Suggestion: In closing, we wanted to let you know of the on-going opportunity to make a donation in honor of the special person in your life.  A donation to this project is a fantastic (and easy) gift for Dad on Father’s Day!  You can make a donation as a gift to your Dad on this project by selecting the third giving option, “gift or in honor of,” under the orange donate button on the project page. GlobalGiving will then send your Dad or the gift recipient an email, print-at-home, or physical card. GlobalGiving offers several fun card designs and you will have the option of choosing a design customized for this project, using the project’s main photo (this option is available for email and print-at-home cards).

Fathers - you can also request this as your Father's day gift!

Make your donation in Father's honor and support a great cause today!
