Mission Statement

Our Mission: Sew Powerful is a Christian ministry that works to combat extreme poverty by creating jobs that provide training and tools to facilitate the creation of purposeful products. These include purses, school uniforms, reusable hygiene pads, soap, and farm fresh food. All designed to promote and enable the academic success of children throughout Zambia, while providing the dignity of work for adults.

Description

Sew Powerful was founded by Jason and Cinnamon Miles in 2009 after a "chance" meeting that was all part of God’s plan. Sew Powerful is a 501(c)3
charity registered in the state of Washington. All positions are held by volunteers.

Sew Powerful volunteers - sometimes individually, sometimes as part of a Chapter - from around the world make and send their purses to the Sew
Powerful headquarters in Seattle. At the same time, Sew Powerful has hired, trained and paid moms in Zambia to sew reusable feminine hygiene supplies.
The pads, shields, underwear and soap go into the purses made by the volunteers. The filled purses are gifted to Zambian schoolgirls as an incentive
to stay in school all month, improving their chances to live life in all its fullness. Visit the SewPowerful.org website for more information.
