Men and women are learning to sew in Northwest Haiti.
Waves of Mercy - Port-de-Paix
Our Port-de-Paix sewing program held their first graduation in April 2018. Six students completed the three-year program. The students will continue coming to class for a few months until our new class starts in the Fall. The graduates have decided to start a sewing business together, and their business is called "Perfectionism." They'll make a variety of clothes, including school uniforms, and do alterations.
Northwest Haiti Christian Mission - Mole St. Nicolas
As of May 2018, this program is on-hold. Please see this blog post for more information.
In April 2016, we began a new partnership with Northwest Haiti Christian Mission's Mole St. Nicolas campus to start a new sewing program there.
The class is now in its second year, and has one Haitian sewing teacher and 11 students, all of whom are women. The students are making a variety of clothes for both women and children.
In addition to learning a trade that will allow them to provide for themselves and their families, they also desire to make an impact in their community by sewing clothes for orphans, and for people who can't afford nice church clothes.
