Learning To Sew

$25 of $1,800 goal

Raised by 2 people in 1 month
Hoping to begin teaching the children how to sew. We have a professional teacher who has evaluated the children and determined that nine are capable of learning the trade. His fee is 200 Kenya Schillings (that's approximately $2). per child, per lesson. He will give five lessons per week. That totals 36,000 Kenya Schillings ($360) per Month for all nine children. That's $40 per child per Month. the course will run five Months, totaling: $1,800. for all nine children. Yes, total cost per student for five Month course is only $200.  yes, for a total of $200 a  student will be well trained and quite capable of repairing clothes and making new ones.

There is a sewing school in the nearby village of Ogembo, but the cost to enroll in that school would be in the thousands of dollars per student for the course. Plus they will not accept students under the age of 18. Our goal is to have our chikdren trained in various specific skills by the time they reach 18, so they can become self supportive.

if you can possibly help these precious orphans, it would be much appreciated. You can meet these children and observe their lifestyle by visiting our YouTube channel  at:   www.youtube.com/user/daddytucker/videos

Greetings Brethren, we are still hoping to get this fundraiser off the ground. Even the smallest donation will be much appreciated. It will be so wonderful for these children to learn how to sew. Some will eventually make it their livelihood.

Greetings everyone. Just wanted to mention that we don't need the entire "fund raising goal" for this project to begin. We can start the first Month of lessons for $360. We also plan to keep a close eye on the learning progress. Some believe that the children can learn to sew (and sew well) in a short period of time. If this is the case, what ever donated funds received, that are not used for instructions in sewing, will be redirected to another worthy cause that will benefit the orphans.

I do hope we will be able to begin the lassos soon, the students are quite anxious to start learning the trade.
