Our new class of sewing school students started classes in February. Let me introduce you to one of them. Kindja is 19 years old and comes from a family of seven children. She was never able to go to school because she was helping care for her younger siblings. When she was 16, her mother died in childbirth with the last baby. As is the cultural norm, Kindja became mother to the baby and her other siblings. As her youngest sibling turned 3, she began thinking about her possible paths to an education. That’s when she applied to our sewing school. “She decided to learn sewing because she truly believes that is the only way to overcome poverty,” Mama Gorethy says about her. We are excited to have her among our newest class of 40 sewing school students.
