Learning to use sewing machine: Woman being trained on using a sewing machine (1/1)

I am planning to travel to the DR Congo villages again in a couple of weeks, to meet the women involved in sewing activities as they are soon completing their programme at the beginning of June and get their certificates on June 10, 2015.

The women have invited me to show me what they have been doing since last January when they started the sewing skills; they also want to share on their lives after the learning. They need to have machines they can be using in order to generate their own income but remaining active members of COFAPRI.

On the same occasion I will visit 3 of the schools in which the children whose school materials and fees we pay for their school education. COFAPRI is sponsoring the school education (fees and school materials) for 86 children (majority are girls born of rape or victims of domestic discrimination) for the moment.
