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.

  • As a Christian Charity, Christmas is a special time for us. A time when we can celebrate the birth of Jesus through the giving of gifts. The gifts can be physical presents or the gift of our time.
For the children we support in Asia the gift they receive from our supporters will be the only Christmas gift they receive this year. Please help us with a donation to make sure these children are able to feel the Christmas spirit this year or give your time to fundraise for these wonderful families.

  • With Chritmas fast approaching, consider spending £5 less on traditional Christmas gifts and help us with a donation to make sure these children are able to feel the Christmas spirit this year.
Maybe you could donate instead of having a festive hot chocolate whilst shopping or donate on behalf of someone who you know would be so pleased to be helping a child experience the joy of Christmas.
Each year at Christmas we support feeding programmes which our partners in Asia run. These provide large numbers of people living in poverty with a meal and the children also receive a gift for Christmas.

  • Each year at Christmas we support feeding programmes which our partners in Asia run. These not only provide large numbers of people living in poverty with a meal but also give opportunities to share the gospel message, sometimes where it has never been heard before. Children also receive a gift for Christmas.

  • Please pray for our partners throughout Asia. Their work relies upon them being fit and well to carry out visits to various parts of their mission fields; and in some instances, in the midst of war-torn areas. Pray for their stamina, protection and for their families at home while they are away. 
Please pray for the energy of our Asian partners to be revitalised so that they can fulfil their calling with the right spirit.

  • It's that time of the year when we start to prepare for Christmas. I know it's not November just yet, but the earlier we prepare the more we can do to improve the lives of the people we help.
Click on the image to discover how a one-off donation of £5 can fund a meal and a gift for a child this Christmas, helping brighten up the end of the year for them. It may not sound much but it has a huge positive impact on the children.
Please like and share this post so we can spread the message to as many people as possible. Thank you.

  • Have you considered sponsoring a child? A small donation of £5 a month (less than the cost of a couple of shop-bought coffees) can have a huge impact on the lives of the wonderful children we work with.
Take a look at the article to see the quotes from our partners helping at an orphanage we work closely with. Your money goes directly to help educate these incredible students, eager to work towards a positive future.
