New sewing machines

The mothers and older sisters of our school children have the opportunity to learn basic skills in reading, writing, mathmatics and hygiene. They can also learn how to sew and embroider - skills that make it possible for them to make and sell clothing and  thus contribute to their own livelihood. Knowledge and independence are two important factors that play a decisive role in improving the status of women in village communities and ultimately in society as a whole.

In fact, the response has been so positive that we now have waiting lists for the coveted spots in the Women Empowerment programmes.

The cost of a sewing machine is € 75,00

Please support the women.
