We are collecting money for eight sewing machines for girls who are finishing two years of sewing school, so that they can become independent and provide for themselves by sewing.

Three years ago Allen decided to start her own sewing school for girls from underprivileged families that don’t have money to attend high school. With support from her brother Ronald the idea came to life. Currently fifteen girls are attending her classes, two of them are women with children. A few have already finished and are now working on their own.

The school is taking place at Allen’s home, where they have nine sewing machines on which the girls can learn and work.

Every day they come in the morning and leave in the afternoon. For them this is a safe space where they can have fun, learn, socialize and work on their skills.

Since the school started, the girls have taken hundreds of sewing orders from people all around the world, which is also the only source of their income and where they get money for basic needs from.

Since some of them have been learning for quite some time and have already mastered the skills, it is Allen’s wish to grant them independence by getting them their own sewing machines. By providing them with their own equipment they will be able to work from home and space will be made for new students to come and learn in the school.

Any remaining funds will be used to buy fabrics, thread, oil for the sewing machines and basic needs items for the girls, such as soap, sanitary pads, clothes, food, etc..

These girls don’t have much, but every order or support puts a smile on their face. We are kindly asking for your support so that these smiles can stay on their faces forever.

Thank you!
