Happy 10th anniversary to the Congo Restoration Sewing School!

Graduation is one of the most exciting days at Congo Restoration. On Saturday, September 25, 40 young women will graduate from the Congo Restoration Sewing School, joining the more than 600 who have graduated since we opened in 2011.

What a difference we have made in 10 years!

Our graduates fill the local village and neighboring villages with their skills — 99% of them are local entrepreneurs, financially independent women who are able to support themselves, their families, and their children.

Upon graduation, each student receives:

• A $25 sewing kit (including scissors, needles, thread, etc., and sent in a handmade bag created by the women of the Keller United Methodist Church in Texas).

• A $150 sewing machine (shared by two graduates as they start their own businesses).

If you are able to fund a graduate’s graduation gift, you can do so below. 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
