Vision for Asia works closely with our local partners sharing their vision to help the poor. One such vision is to share the love of Jesus with women who could be given the opportunity to learn a life skill through sewing. This helps lift their families out of poverty and gives them hope for the future. This project is open to Christians and Hindus alike as the hand of hope is extended to these ladies.

 Sew kindness, sew mercy, sew love

Since the first sewing school was initiated in 2012, the sewing project has been successful in seeing 100 ladies learn this skill. They are now self-sufficient and supporting other ladies to learn. Their quality of life has improved as they are now able purchase food and send their children to school. Vision for Asia is now embarking on a fourth sewing project this time in a village in a slum area of Kolkata. It sees the same environmental and economic hardships of its three predecessors, with the six ladies who have enrolled having the same goal – to be free from poverty and provide for their families.

Two years ago my husband left me and my two children. I now live with my parents. My father is a farmer and my mother sells fish in the market. They are looking after us. Having this opportunity to learn to sew means that I can sell the garments I make, stand on my feet and I can take care of my family. I would like to thank those who are behind the scenes helping the needy person. God bless you all.

Jaba is a mother of one son and one daughter. She lives on a remote island in West Bengal and in 2012 was one of the first ladies to enrol and complete the sewing project. She told us that she now has a hope for her life.

Before joining the sewing project, I used to go to the river and get baby tiger prawns and sell them for 20 paisa each (less than 1 pence). With that little money I would feed my children for that day. We were suffering a lot, but now I can earn money by selling the garments I make. I can help my children with their education and feed my family. We are so happy. Thank you very much to all who have helped me to learn sewing.
