Micro-business: Sewing Training Institute

  • Hearts Without Borders has instituted a sewing micro-business for women.
  • July, 2008 the Sewing Training Institute facility was constructed.
  • The facility will serve 20 students.
  • Twenty sewing machines have been purchased, with materials.
  • A woman is selected by:
  • 1) integrity
  • 2) motivation
  • 3) business aptitude
  • 4) need.
  • Upon completing her training, she is awarded the sewing machine and sewing fabric ($100 value). As she begins her industry and sells her sewing items, she will repay the $100 which will then be awarded to another woman to begin her industry.
  • Micro-business: Chicken Farm $1,000 donation has been received to begin a chicken farm. We are presently looking for property to begin the project.
  • Micro-business: gardens $1,000 in garden seeds has been donated for distribution to help families establish community and personal gardens to provide income for food and other needs.
