Right before the holidays, we had another sewing class. This group of young women were about 14 years of age.
It is so rewarding to see how engaged they are with learning this skill. It is my hope to inspire financial literacy and entrepreneurial interest in these young ladies to offer a path beyond early marriage and motherhood.
To that end, we are working on a new curriculum to offer levels of sewing projects in conjunction with other DREAMS lessons like: HIV education and prevention, Domestic Abuse prevention, hygiene, condom use and more.
We hope that this will keep the youth engaged and excited about building a stronger future for themselves.
I am looking forward to what we will accomplish in 2020!
