HOPE Community Sewing Class began three months ago. There are six adult students attending the class. All adult students completed the three-month course and one of the adult students decided to leave the program and start a small business at home. HOPE supported her with one sewing machine and some sewing materials. In this course, the students learned how to use the kick pedal of the sewing machine, sew a straight line, a double line. The students are able to make a short shirt, French pants for the children, put a zipper on the skirt and zippered clamp, pillowcases, pants and trousers. The other five adults will continue to study for another six-month course at HOPE Community Sewing Class.
This program is a pathway for poor families to start their own business at home and earn a good income.
