“Sewing for a Better Tomorrow,” our club’s newest international project, delivered a week of sewing lessons to a group of women in Sandhill Village, Belize and left the women with the equipment, supplies, skills, and knowledge they need to start a sewing cooperative and earn gainful income.

It was a week of long days and hard work in some mighty intense heat—both for the women of Sandhill and for the project’s volunteers—but under the fantastic leadership of club member Lora Lee Peaslee, the rewards reaped by all were many.

The ultimate goal was to help the women help themselves, so we’re looking forward to hearing updates from the co-op executive regarding how things are going. Lora Lee will stay connected with the women to provide ongoing support and advice. A heartfelt thanks goes out to all of you who donated to this worthwhile project.
