“Learning to sew has changed my life. I can now make uniforms for my church.” – Cecilia
Meet Cecelia (51 years old)
Cecelia is a mother of 3, a grandmother of 5 and the sole breadwinner in her family.
She has been doing domestic work for 35 years and was struggling to make ends meet.
She wanted to learn to sew as a way to earn a little extra money but could not easily afford the classes.
A good Samaritan found out about Cecilia and decided to help by sponsoring her a Basic Sewing Class.
In the Basic Sewing Class, Cecilia quickly learned how to use a sewing machine and put her first project together. Thereafter, to develop her new found skill, Cecelia signed up as a Sewing Member. She learned to make basic home ware items like table runners and scatter cushions and has since moved on to making clothing.
Cecelia still does domestic work but is now able to supplement her income by selling the items she produces to her church and her community.
She now has a skill that will serve her for the rest of her life and is excited about what she can still learn to make.
