When a girl in India learns to sew she gains a skill that can become her livelihood. it enriches her life in so many ways, building confidence and sparking creativity. at our Hope Centers in India there’s a pressing need to replace old units with new electric models. in fact, the old units are antiquated, self-powered treadle machines. the girls get a lot of exercise while sewing, but they would much rather use a machine powered by electricity! Some of our young ladies have become so proficient that they’ve produced clothing and crafts which are now sold to the general public. For them, your gift is a godsend.
