The vision for a sewing machine ministry rose from our need to teach skills to released women prisoners. In our plan for a half-way house for the girls we have sent a mama to tailoring school and equipped her in preparation to teach tailoring to the half-way girls where they will live one full-year to prepare for re-entering society skilled and ready to be self-supporting.
We will also offer the sewing classes among other skills to widows in the surrounding community. This offers a dignified lifestyle for widows who have turned to begging on the streets, prostitution or making and selling brew. The skills program will include business management classes along with their Bible curriculum courses.
