The students will learn to make 3-4 different items that will be sold on a GoTEN owned website - shoprefugee.com. The handmade refugee items will make great Christmas gifts and will provide income for refugee women who often don't work. The goal of the class is to help women connect in new friendships around a sewing machine and learn a new skill that could provide income for struggling families.
While the class will be led by an instructor, we are looking for women in the community who like to sew. We would like to have a 1:1 ratio between student and volunteer helper. Volunteers will assist refugee women as they learn. Sewing machines were provided by Desert View Bible Church.
