Gambia Sewing Skills for Life .
I have volunteered for a trip to the Gambia in November 2018 to visit Marakissa River Camp to teach Women and children to sew. They will learn how to make their own clothes as well as sew items they can sell to tourists to raise an income. Many of the people who attend the classes will be walking from surrounding villages to learn a skill that they don't currently have. We want to give up a week of our time to teach both hand sewing and machine sewing (they do have some form of electricity that is generated using solar panels). Any funds raised will help towards travel costs, providing materials and basic medical supplies, as well as hopefully posting 2-3 sewing machines ahead of our trip which be left there. Many of the people in this location have very little in the way of clothing or shoes and your support for this worthwhile cause will be very much appreciated. All funds raised will be spent entirely on this project and any extra funds will be spent on fabric and supplies.
Please help to make someone else's life better.
