(un)adopted is excited to be partnering with Developing Hope (www.developinghope.org) in opening a sewing center for women in Pakistan. We are very thankful for the Martha Pullen Sewing Company for donating the means in order to purchase 8 sewing machines in Pakistan.
The sewing center opened March 21 with 17 ladies enrolled and ready to learn how to sew. By the third day, 8 more students enrolled bringing the total to 25 students! The number of students is increasing as news of the center spreads among the community. 65% of the students are older girls who were never able to attend school. 35% of the students only completed a few years of school due to lack of finances. The students have the opportunity to learn the skill of sewing on a 3, 6, or 9 month track. At the completion of the course, each student is given a small sewing machine to help them implement the skills they learned at the center.
Please pray for these women as they are learning a new skill, gaining confidence, and contributing to bring about positive change in their families and communities.
