Sewing machines for families in Uganda, and egg-laying chickens for families and Sisters in Kenya!

By Naomi Corera, February 15, 2016

We are very happy to share two updates from the Sisters in Fort Portal, Uganda, and Ruai, Kenya. Thanks to extra Christmas generosity from people like you, we were able to give two sewing machines with tables, plus fabric and tools, to the community in Fort Portal, Uganda. There are classes now to teach people, especially young mothers, to sew items such as aprons and mats. See the three aprons that they have already made! Each apron can raise about $15 in market for them, an incredible boost for a small family. Also, in Ruai, Kenya, two families and the Sisters are now in the chicken raising and egg selling business. Each family and the Sisters were given 200 day old chicks. It took a lot of effort to keep them alive. For instance they had to keep the alarm clock every hour and make sure they were warm and not being stepped on or that they have not fallen into the water. The first 7 months all the funds went on feeding. Now after 7 months, success! Eggs! Eggs! For sale! Yahoo!
