Let’s get sewing kits to these graduates!

This is Esther, the youngest student of this sewing school class. She is 14.

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? We plan to raise all the money for the kits in the next week, finishing on International Women’s Day.

Donate below through UMCOR (which does not charge fees), PayPal, or Venmo.

Thank you so much for your tax-deductible donation to lift up these amazing women and children of Congo Restoration!

      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
