Happy Kids Sewing Program

16 Feb

Hello from Hohoe,

I’m pleased to report that this week, we resumed our sewing program with the Happy Kids. It had taken a brief hiatus, for need of materials and personnel, but it is back in action and doing better than ever. One of our wonderful Della seamstresses, Vida, and I journeyed over to HK yesterday afternoon, and when we arrived the kids had already prepared for us. They brought the table and benches into the courtyard, had set up the machines, and had the other supplies at the ready. We gave hugs and high fives and hand shakes all around, and then quickly got to work — there was a lot of work to be done by a lot of eager people on only two machines — time was of the essence, as the saying goes!

Vida shows Charlotte how to work the machine...

and then Charlotte does it on her own!

Vida, myself, and the kids are all looking forward to next week, when we will begin a new project! Stay tuned for more updates.
