Sewing for the Long Term

Today we started a whole new chapter in DHF activities. We started a 3 month long sewing course in collaboration with Sonia, my new favorite teacher. She taught our women apron's class last month and now is teaching our women a complete sewing women's clothes course, complete with a certificate at the end of 3 months. A certificate from a technical institute here in Cajamarca is the equivalant to post-secondary learning in the U.S. DHF has helped women learn new things, try new things, explore new things. But, this course is an amazing opportunity for our women to really develop their sewing skills and professional/business skills too. Those women that want to root themselves in sewing and grow, this is their chance. I will keep you all posted about our sewing students and their projects as the course takes it's course.
