Thank you for your continued support on behalf of all of us at GLOWA! Your generosity to date has enabled us to make our Sew-A-Future program a reality and we will be opening our doors in a few short weeks! Sew-A-Future aims to help 40 victims of trafficking develop marketable skills in sewing so that they can enter the organized labor market to earn a living for themselves and their families. With these skills and regular, legitimate employment these victims will no longer be at risk from the traffickers in Cameroon.
It has been a wonderfully busy first quarter, your generosity has enabled us to rent a three room flat for our Sewing Center. We have been able to make modifications to the building to ensure its longevity, and purchase supplies which include: new manual sewing machines, an industrial embroidery machine, electric iron, table and chairs, pattern table, production table for sewing machines as well as pay for the associated shipping costs of two new Baby Lock sewing machines from the US to Cameroon. In addition to building out the physical requirements needed for the Sewing Center we have partnered with Turner Perry Consulting in the US who have worked to put together a very robust Introduction to Sewing module for our trainers and educators to utilize. We will continue to work with them into the future to add additional modules to our vocational programs.
We are so thankful for your continued support! In order to open our doors to as many survivors as possible we continue to ask for your kindness and generosity in donating to our cause. With your help we can ensure all survivors are given the opportunity to embrace a bright future!
With thanks and warm wishes
