Sewing for a Better Future

Seven Wells is “a faith-based development organization raising up a generation who will transform Africa.”

In 2005, they started a sewing school for mothers.  The women attend Monday to Friday for 9 months with the goal that at the end they have a trade.  About 300 of them have graduated and are now self-sufficient and able to afford the basic necessities of life.  This helps them to feel good about themselves because they can take care of their families.  They have a purpose in life now.

This December 10 to 12 women are graduating and Seven Wells is hoping to provide each one with her own sewing machine so she can start her own business.  This is where you come.  The cost of a sewing machine is approximately $150, but you can donate any amount you would like to empower these women, making it possible for them to have a better future.  Not only will you have the satisfaction of knowing that you have helped a woman take care of her family but if you donate $50 or more you will receive a special gift sewn by these women mailed to you.

Help to make a difference in a woman’s life in Rwanda by making it possible for her to have her own sewing machine.  If you would like to make a donation visit here or if you would like to learn more about Seven Wells and the work they do, visit here.  These women are sewing for a better future.  Let’s do what we can to help them.

  1. we all have to go out there and perform like look for something to do like some sort of income to be dependent and forget about a handout, remember that we have to look out for the children to give them their needs and to pay our bills and I know that will make you a better person’ I’m sure your mother has told you the same thing, your mother shouldn’t have to tell you that!

    • Yes, we all have to take responsibility for ourselves. Our parents raise us and when we are older, they expect us to go out there and fend for ourselves, offering their advice and support. It’s nice when women, especially in certain parts of the world where poverty is prevalent are able to find ways to earn money so that they can take care of themselves and their families. Sewing is one way. Other women make and sell crafts or produce.
