Many of the mothers of the children in our school became pregnant and had their babies when they were very young. In some cases these women had no choice in the matter, but she still remains responsible to care for her child. Too often, they choose to live with any man who agrees to feed her children, even if he is abusive, because she has no skills, no education to get a job and no way on her own to support her child.
For these women, we have a sewing lab and sewing lessons. When they learn to sew well and maintain the machine, we give them their own sewing machine when they graduate from the class. Having her own machine makes it possible for these young mothers to start a small business making school uniforms.
We need people to help sponsor sewing machines for our graduates.
