2018 Congo Sew School Ad

Be a part of our June sewing school graduation! 

The chair of our board, Dawn McMullan, is traveling to the DRC for our upcoming graduation in early June. We have 40 graduates whose lives will be changed by your investment in them and their work at our school for the past eight months. Help us honor them by funding their graduation gifts: A sewing machine (shared by two graduates who will start a business together) and a sewing kit (of sewing necessities from the US). Dawn leaves on June 2 so we need all donations by Friday, May 24. Donation links below.

Fund a backpack and school supplies?

While Dawn and another board member, Angela Lovell, are in Congo, they will also take part in a celebration of the opening of the Congo Restoration Village School, which will open as a first-grade classroom in September. You can fund a backpack filled with school supplies for the 30 girls who will be the school’s first students plus the 30 orphans who already are in Congo Restoration’s care. We need 60 backpacks at $25 each. Thank you!

      Thanks, Diane! I’ll look through our PayPal account to get a guest list. Or you can message me, like you just did. 🙂 So glad you can make it. Maybe drag Andrea along with you … or whomever you’d like! Thanks so much. It’ll be great to see you! — Dawn
