February 2018 Update

Well we have had a great month – and we are back into the swing of things

Our February sewing days was very successful with another new lady coming on Board to sew with us. We have completed our first Monthly Report for the International organisation and we are now officially a Days for Girls International Team

One of our sewing days

We sent kits to Pakistan this month and they have been distributed so another 24 girls and ladies now have kits of their own. In addition we are going to send clothing to Pakistan this week and another 30 kits! It keeps us all busy.

Night time in Winter does not stop our Days for Girls work!!

I spoke with the Probus Club in Dickson with a great deal of interest from the ladies. We received $60 in donations and lots of interest in cleaning out the stash of fabric in their homes – so it was a wonderful morning. Thanks to Colleen for making it happen and the Probus ladies for being so welcoming.

Lubna and the girls in Pakistan

We have a lot on our plate at present with clothes being sent around the globe but thankfully we have a lot of active sewers – Sue and I often remember when she and I did the bulk of the work and now we have ladies in every part of Australia and this week I got 3 parcels of beautifully sewn clothing – from Heather, Dianne and Lesley.

Our Flutter Sleeve dresses

Exciting news is that we are sending 100 kits to Kenya with Global School Partners – we will be training the leader through the online training and we are rolling kits out to 4 schools and Safe Haven Orphanage. Plus all the children at that orphange will receive new clothing too!!

Last year in Kenya – more to come this year in July

We will change the name of this charity to Sew for Change Australia this year as our work has broadened the scope – stay tuned for an exciting new look. We will try to get it recognised as a charity with tax deductible status.

Thank you for all your support

We raised $610 in our MyCause Campaign which will assist us to send kits to Pakistan over the next 4 months!! that is 120 girls and women

We are looking forward to a wonderful busy and productive year
