SEW MY DREAM
Dallas Designing Dreams
I am involved in a very meaningful project I’m excited to tell you about. For the entire month of September, I will be sewing purses for girls in Zambia as a part of the 2023 Sew Powerful Sew-a-Thon. The purses I make, along with thousands of others, will travel to Zambia where they will be filled with soap, underwear, and reusable feminine hygiene pads for schoolgirls in impoverished communities. Having access to these pads (a hard-to-get resource in Zambia) allows girls to attend school all month long. This greatly impacts a girl’s academic performance, giving her a chance to break the cycle of poverty with a quality education. The pads are sewn by Zambian seamstresses trained and employed by Sew Powerful, providing good paying jobs and the dignity of work for these women. This is a life-changing blessing for both the seamstresses and the girls in a country where so many struggle to escape the effects of extreme poverty.
Here is where you come in:
Could you make a one-time donation, in any amount, to Sew Powerful in consideration of my effort? Proceeds from the 2023 Sew-a-Thon help to fill the purses for the girls and pay our dedicated Zambian seamstresses.
Thank you for your consideration and say a little prayer for me as I sew away in September!
