Here is another “Charity Spotlight.” (You can check the “Charity Spotlight” Button on the blog for more great organizations!)  Today I would like to share with you –  Sew Powerful!

From Romania, to Honduras, to Zambia – they educate women to make a difference in their community by sewing.  They teach them a skill – one of which is learning to sew reusable feminine pads that discretely fit inside an attractive purse.   This not only helps them to begin a micro-business, but also to help the women and girls in their community!

From their Mission Statement:

We are passionate about empowering women to make a better life. Together, we strive to train & equip women with sewing & tailoring skills so they can feed their kids, keep them in school, and make a difference in their community.

We started with an innovative school uniform program and then reusable feminine hygiene pads. These purposeful products provide an income to the seamstresses while at the same time making education possible for the children of the community.

Here is their story now available on Kindle at Amazon. (pre-order now: free with kindle unlimited, or $4.99.)

Do YOU like to sew? They also accept donations and you can find the patterns on their site.  You can check out the organization at:
