In accordance with our mission to "partner in the development of communities that would promote spiritual, physical, and socio-economic transformation", Hearts & Hope has aided in the development of a sewing center in the village of Nakabango. The women who work in the sewing center are incredibly dedicated and ambitious. They work hard to complete projects, such as sewing the school uniforms and making beads, while also teaching the trade to other women. They are also starting a catering business! Recently, the leader of the Women's Ministry sent this report on their progress and their hopes for the future.
Report from Nakabango Lutheran
The above mentioned department warmly welcomes
Julie and her team in the name of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
Hi Julie. The women of Nakabango Lutheran Church extend their appreciation towards you and your team in the USA for the good work you do for them that is about to make their dreams turn into a reality.
The money we realized from jewelry was utilized in the following ways: plastering the inner part of the tailoring house which is over and we have started plastering the outer part as well as making the veranda.
Given chance after the completion of the plastering of the tailoring house, we have plans of starting to buy utensils for setting up a catering project which is intended not only for teaching the women how to cook but also enabling them to earn their living from within their community.
On the side of tailoring, last year the students of Nakabango Lutheran Secondary School started learning tailoring and performed well at the end of their first year and they are now going in for their second year. As per now we are sewing uniforms for Nakabango Lutheran primary school.
We pray the living God leads you back to the US.
