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!
