Sewing Machines for Uganda

Mom was recently approached by a friend with connections in Uganda. This friend made a request for help purchasing several sewing machines for a new vocational school run by Polline, a pastor’s wife.

Polline decided to open this school when she found that many girls in the area had become pregnant during the COVID lockdown. Her desire is to teach these young women a skill, so they can have a source of income to provide for their babies. The following are the needs for the school.

  • 10 sewing machines ($150 each)
  • 1 Serger ($450)
  • Funds for a temporary structure at Polline’s home to accommodate social distancing for 25 students.

If you are interested in donating to this ministry, please let us know.
