Men and women are learning to sew in Northwest Haiti.

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.

As of May 2018, this program is on-hold. Please see this blog post for more information.

Students in the Northwest Haiti Christian Mission's Mole St. Nicolas sewing program.

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.

 

 

 

This ministry is changing lives in our community. It’s giving ladies who are often abused/mistreated a chance to support their family and stand on their own.

It’s the only sewing class within a 3-hour walking distance. I’m grateful for the support & sacrifices made so that we can not only provide jobs but show them Jesus in a very tangible way. This class is creating disciples and a sisterhood of support!
