Everybody needs clothes, which makes tailoring the journey of choice for many seeking a way out of poverty. Wherever you go in Africa, from busy city street corners to quiet rural backwaters, you will find a tailor with their sewing machine. The gift of a sewing machine will allow a newly trained tailor to work from their own home or a market place and use the proceeds to keep a roof over their family’s heads, put food on the table, and send their children to school.
Sewing Kit Included
This is a virtual gift. Your purchase will cover the costs of collecting a donated sewing machine and refurbishing it, ready to be sent off to a skills training centre in Africa. You will receive a card to recognise your purchase of a virtual gift through the post. This will be despatched by second class mail within 5 working days of receiving your order.
On occasion we may need to substitute or omit certain items in tool kits.
