It's with joy that we share another report with photos where trainees show off a number of the styles that they have sewn. The completed dresses / outfits demonstrate that they have been successful in learning and applying skills.  This is true evidence of progress! You can see the happiness and looks of accomplishment in their faces.

The ladies are very excited about the skills they are developing.  People within the community have started given trainees small sewing contracts.  These sewing jobs are helping them to raise money to meet some domestic needs. This is excellent and they are already reaping the benefits

You helped make this happen and we are deeply grateful to you for your kind supportYOU are helping to bring about skill development and true progress.  What better feeling than that of helping someone improve them self and learn a livelihood!  The support that we have been providing is helping to compensate the four tutors and provide the training materials / equipment needed.

Your support has made the difference and exception for these women.  You shared love through your donation.  You made this happen!  Thanks so much for helping to bring a brighter future to these deserving ladies!

We welcome your on-going support that will support further training.  We would like to purchase a Singer professional machine costing $650.  This will aid the ladies in further improving their skills.  Could you help us purchase this by making a special donation today of $25.00 or more?  The ladies will be thrilled and so appreciative.  Thanks for your support!
