Women's Lives are Changed!

Unskilled women in the communities where Every Home for Christ is educating children are also given an opportunity for self-development. In India and Bangladesh sewing classes train village women in the tailoring skills they need for employment and many are able to find work in garment factories, earning an income for the first time in their lives. The Indian women who formed a "Self-Help" group are so grateful to Every Home for Christ for giving them the opportunity to own their own sewing machines so they can sew clothes at home and earn a living. All these women from poor communities have developed in their self-esteem as they are able to help provide daily needs for their families.

$195 will provide a sewing machine to help one woman fight her way out of poverty

Myanmar Di Su Village Global Concern Be A HERO  11Donate Button Small AUS

City:  Yangon, Myanmar
Project:  Learning Centres
Partner:  Global Concern/Every Home for Christ

The poorest of the poor in Yangon are living in the wettest parts of the city with "housing"  built on stagnant slimey water.  The families don't have enough money to send their children to school, so this project is designed to bring the school to them.

Small bamboo and tin "community centres" are built in the community to be used as a school for the village children to be able to receive basic numeracy and literacy skills, allowing them to be able to go on to a government school if their family can afford it, or at least giving them these basic skills required for employment and life in general.
