We’re raising funds to help finish building our new and larger Refugee Sewing Center. With your gift, we can empower more refugee women in Nashville with the skills and community they need to help them succeed.
We’re getting close! This past week the old heating unit was ripped out and new walls went up. There’s plenty left to do, but we’re making great progress and with your help we can finish soon.
Our sewing program, called Sew For Hope, teaches refugee women in Nashville sewing and business skills side-by-side with Christian volunteers.
Our current classroom space is very small; we can only serve a handful of women each semester and the waiting list keeps growing. To date, over 250 women have graduated the program, received their certificate, and a new sewing machine.
Many have found jobs earning much needed income for their families. For lots of these women, it is the first time they have been recognized for their talent or worth.
With your gift, we will be a step closer to finishing our new sewing center that will serve more women, host more classes, and involve more volunteers.
Thank you, and if you’re in the Nashville area, we’d love for you to drop by and see how things are going!
