Giving Hope Through Technical Training

Micro-Business: Sewing Training Institute

•  Hearts Without Borders has instituted a sewing micro-business for both men and women. The opportunity is open to the community and all faiths. 

•  July, 2008 the Sewing Training Institute facility was constructed. 

•  2020:  20 new treadle machines and 4 embroidery machines replaced the original machines worn out from use.

•  The clothing manufacturing serves 200 families 

•  Candidates for the sewing industry are chosen by

1) integrity 
2) motivation 
3) business aptitude 
4) need. 

Upon completing their training, they are awarded the sewing machine and sewing fabric ($100 value). As they begins their industry and sells sewing items, they will repay the $100 which will then be awarded to another student to begin their industry. 


A Note From Bishop Serges Nsabimana

 Dear Jeri,
We are really thankful for your help and support for the sewing school. Your help and support with these sewing machines will really help and save many people.
We bought the 10 ordinary sewing machines  ($200 each) and 1 big sewing machine which is the one that can do more sophisticated things (like embroidery, etc) but for this last one, the cost is between $700 to $800.
So for now we have purchased 20 new sewing machines with the money you sent us as you will see it in the pictures. It was really a joyful time for the students and our instructor, Francine, when they were seeing the new sewing machines. Thank you very much .
