By Faith Ministries purchases sewing machines and a place for the sewing centres to operate in. Women are then given dressmaking and sewing lessons. These sewing centres manufacture clothing that is sold in shops as well as fulfilling orders made by schools, orphanages, corporations and even government contracts.
Every single dollar made goes to providing an income for the women employed at the sewing centres as well as to fund further micro-industries.
How you can help

In The Philippines, sewing centres help rescue battered women. It is hard for these women to escape their situations as they do not have sufficient skills or work experience to earn money to support themselves and their children. Sewing centres provide them with an income and also a support group who encourage them in creating a new life for themselves and their families.
Sewing centres make it possible for battered women in The Philippines to support their families and to give their children an education and a safe place to live. It also allows them to be self-sufficient, support their families, develop a sense of worth and connect with other women. Our sewing centres are growing rapidly with international orders and government projects as well as a reputation for quality in The Philippines.
In India, sewing centres employ widows, abandoned young adults and poor women. They provide an extra income for families to their generational, limiting lifestyles and benefit their entire communities. Women who are considered low in Indian society or have been sold into the sex trade are given dignity and a means to living by working in sewing centres.
Sewing centres in India are also used to finance orphanages and schools for slum children.
