Sewing machines can change lives

January 31, 2017

In June of 2016, the village of Woadze Tsatoe inaugurated their Batik Training Center, and started producing beautiful, high quality batik in Ghanaian fashion. As more people saw their prints, the most common question became, “Can you make me something with your fabric?” “No, sorry”, was the only answer given. There was no sewing machine in the entire community.

Fast forward to November 2016, and thanks to donations by Betsy B. and Denise L., Woadze Tsatoe now owned two sewing machines! Excitement was high, and soon orders came in from Texas and New York.

The Batik Training Center has fulfilled the orders, but to elevate the quality, they need your help with additional donations: three sergers, four-five more sewing machines, and an industrial iron are needed to professionally finish their merchandise. Adanu has a group from NYU willing to take the donated machines with them in March. Please help the Woadze Tsatoe Batik Training Center and contact for more information!!!

Desks for Woadze Tsatoe!

We are so very grateful for our relationships with different government entities and the people who make government work. Here is a recent story about how Robert introduced the issue of a lack of desks to a regional government department, and together he and Bright were able to find a solution.
