Connecting Canadians with the Forgotten People of the World
We are a Canadian based group of individuals who volunteer our time collectively, with a passion for connecting people and resources with the forgotten peoples of the world. Our desire is to engage and develop skills and vision amongst those living in poverty, so that they may be encouraged towards positive change for their future and the future of their families and communities.
Working in rural areas of Kenya, Mexico, Uganda and locally in Guelph, Ontario, Canada, we aim to connect people who have a desire to help others with people who need support. We are a project based organization; initiating and supporting projects that have lasting impact and offer sustainable and positive change for all those involved.
"Sew Much to Give" is about empowering women through teaching sewing skills and mentoring girls on sustainable health & hygiene.
The program supports a local tailor to teach sewingskills one-on-one with each girl and a local nurse who mentors small groups about menstrual health and avoiding pregnancy.
Each program cycle intakes 20 girls. The program runs in a local church of a rural area where access to medical care is scarce. Your support helps prevent early pregnancies in girls and can help alleviate painful or even fatal infections. The Sewing Community is a positive environment for the girls to be together and receive much needed guidance and mentorship while learning a valuable life-long skill.
Thank you for choosing to participate in this positive change for a better future for these women and girls.
