Our December graduates received sewing machines on graduation day — because we buy them locally in DRC — but they did not receive their graduation sewing kits. The bags are made by the Sisters Of Sewing group at Keller UMC in Texas and we purchase the sewing tools to put in the kits in the United States, as they are higher quality here.
Mama Gorethy, our founder, is in the United States now and headed back to Congo later this month. She will take the sewing kits back to our graduates to help them as they start their own businesses.
Are you able to fund a $25 kit for one of our 40 graduates? Donate here.
