Sewing Training Centers

After meeting some physical and spiritual needs, God put it on Padma’s heart that the ladies (beginning with tribes 1 and 2), mostly widows, needed a way to make their own living.  A house was rented for 10 months, teachers hired, machines purchased, and student’s came to work very hard six days a week to learn tailoring.  The teacher worked all day, teaching two classes, one in the morning and one in the evening.  Yes, six days a week!

They were to then begin to teach ladies from the 3rd and 4th tribal areas.  The problem is that each lady trained is sharing a machine.  To share and then to also use that time to further train is a difficulty.  Many more machines are needed, desperately.  We have since had another 6 months of training a whole new group of students just finishing up the end of winter of 2013.  The cost of running a sewing center is now about $200 a month.  This class was  held on the AFM campus saving the cost of renting a house.  We would also like to see a center in another village where there is a church building that can be used.

If you would like to purchase a sewing machine for this ministry, or sponsor a clinic for 6 months you would bless so many people with a skill set for their livelihood.  The cost for a machine is $200. Please email us so that we can contact you with further information to get involved.

2018 Angela visited one of the successful students from this school. She is a successful business woman. Angela took two dresses without sleeves to her to have the sleeves put on and she did just that while she waited. She was cast out of her home before the sewing clinic, and now with her training, she is married, earning a living, and living a good life.
