Sew Hopeful in Haiti and at Home
Sew Hopeful is a not-for-profit group dedicated to working collaboratively with women and girls in Haiti and here in our home communities too. Together we develop skills, learning resources and plans that will enrich personal and economic well-being via sewing.
Sew Hopeful was initiated March 2013, in partnership with Global Partners, the organization that gives global focus to the mission of the Wesleyan Church. Our hope was (and continues to be) that God would:
~ Join Our Hearts, Heads and Hands Together in Love with Haiti ~
Over the years we have had the privilege of providing supplies and teaching skills to women in the community of Babaco, Haiti. Recently, we began to also work with West Indies Self Help (WISH) to help women and girls develop sewing and needlecraft skills and build community in Anse et Galet, LaGonave, Haiti. http://www.haitiwish.com
In 2017, we began meeting with women in our own communities to do the same thing — help empower and enable people to learn new skills, make friends, have fun and potentially earn some money too!
~ Joining hearts, heads and hands together to build community ~
Moving into 2019 we are putting our focus on creativity with mixed media sewing and crocheting to refashion, alter and mend clothing.
