Our Threads of Promise sewing project in Guatemala City enables women to learn the skill of sewing while also earning their own machine. This program, which lasts for 3 months has been a blessing to so many of our mamas! Not only are they learning a skill that will help them provide for their families, but they are learning about Jesus and connecting with women in the church. Since the beginning of the program we have seen many mamas come to know Jesus and actually get involved in the church and the school. The friendships that develop in each class are long lasting and we are thrilled with the ways that these women and their families are changing because of Threads of Promise.
Our next class of 6 ladies will graduate in June. They will earn part of the money needed to purchase their sewing machine from the items that they are making. We find sponsors here in the US to offset the other portion of the amount needed. In total we are looking for $125 per woman. However, this Mother's Day we are giving you the opportunity to honor your Mom by sponsoring a Mama in Guatemala for $25, $50, or $100.
With your $25 gift of honor we will provide a beautiful card, acknowledging the gift.
With your $50 gift of honor we will provide the card and an accessory bag made by our mamas.
With your $100 gift of honor we will provide the card and a tote bag made by our mamas.
You can donate online here, choosing the fund "Guatemala Orphan Projects". Please note in the comment box whether you want us to send the gift directly to your Mom (and provide a name and address) or if you would like us to send it to you.
Thanks so much for helping us reclaim hope for women in Guatemala!
