Save Project Stitch

Project  Stitch is a trade training program for persons with disabilities in Port au Prince, Haiti. We teach people how to sew so that they can generate an income and successfully reintegrate into Haitian society.

The project was started in 2012 and we have stayed open thanks to generous private donations over the last 6 years. At this time we find ourselves without a donor for the upcoming year.

Now we need your help.

The cost to operate the program for a year is 35000 US dollars. Please help us by donating any amount- every cent counts.
