New school uniforms for the orphans

There are 36 children in the Mole St. Nicolas orphanage that will need new school uniforms this fall.  

Haiti requires uniforms for every child who attends school. Thanks to our sewing class, not only can our students make them for the orphans, but now they can make them for their own children, too! This is a pretty big deal for the Mole, because parents typically have to travel hours to have them made.

Here's a few pictures of our students holding their practice paper uniforms. They practice with sewing paper first before using fabric.

We can't wait to see the children wearing their new uniforms this fall!


Q & A with our students

We recently asked our Mole St. Nicolas students what they like best about the sewing class, and what their family and friends thought about them learning to sew.

Here's a few of their responses. As you can see, the sewing class is truly changing lives!

Madame Nene


I like making uniforms and clothes for myself. My family was happy when they saw me sewing on a machine, and said that before they didn't think I could sew, but now they see I can!

I could not sew anything before.  Now I can. My family is happy when I make beautiful things.

Ketline I like that I can make many new things. All of my friends and family want to come to class, too! (Ketline's holding one of the skirts she made.)
