Sewing project update

Many of you will be aware that we have been running a sewing project for the women of Happy Village for 4 years now. It all started back in the old village, when Sam (an Australian missionary who was living in Phnom Penh) bought sewing machines for 2 women who had expressed a desire to learn to sew and generate more income for their families. You can read about the project’s history here

In the old village and also in the new Happy Village, the 10 ladies now participating in the sewing project had a less than ideal working environment. Due to a lack of dedicated sewing space, they spent a lot of their time setting up and packing up all of their sewing gear and materials.

But as you can see in these latest photos, they now have the perfect environment to work in. One of the rooms in Happy Village has had a makeover, transforming it into an ideal headquarters for the sewing project. The sewing room will enable the sewing ladies to work more efficiently - meaning they will be able to sew more products and earn more money for their families. And while they work, they will be encouraged by messages painted on the walls, praising God for blessing them with this opportunity.

But this is also good news for you! These products have been selling like hotcakes in Australia, both via emailed requests from our supporters and through a regular market stall in Perth. Now it will be easier to meet the demand!

Soon we will be adding a sewing product catalogue to the Products section of this website. But until then, we would love to hear from you at enquiries@fellowshipofhope.net where you can request a copy of the catalogue, order items, or find out more about our stall in Perth. Your support can transform the lives of our people, and create opportunities for them that they had never dreamed were possible.
