The Sew Powerful Purse Program ✂

I came across "The Sew Powerful Purse Program" who are looking for people to sew a cross body purse to help keep girls in school all month and provide jobs to seamstresses in Lusaka! 

"In East Africa girls miss an average of 6 weeks of school each year because they are on their period, and without access to feminine hygiene product, they simply stay home."

When I read about this program I knew I had to get involved!  The next deadline to ship a purse to them is October 2017.  If you want to get involved you can find information on their website and download a free pattern for the purse and a video tutorial!

You can also learn more about how the purses create academic achievement in Zambia and learn about the issue of Menstrual Hygiene Management.
