Mission Statement

Seeds to Sew International is a non-profit organization with the mission of improving the lives of women and girls in disadvantaged communities through education and job skills training. Our goal is for the women girls in our programs to use these job skills to make money and support themselves, their families and communities.

Description

Since its inception in February 2010, Seeds to Sew International has raised funds to build a dormitory for the Kakenya School for Excellence in Enoosean, Kenya. We have raised funds to help educate girls who have been orphaned or disowned from their families. In February of 2011, we launched our Enkiteng Giving Bags program to teach basic sewing and business skills to enable women to make money and support themselves and their communities. In July 2011, we launched our Enkisoma Beading program allowing young girls and their mothers to bead jewelry as a way to earn income to pay for school fees. In early 2012, we expanded both programs into two Kenyan farming communities serving over 30 women and their children and fully funding school fees for girls in the beading program.

We plan to partner with other Kenyan NGO’s in 2013 to grow our programs and reach more women and girls. Here in America, we are actively involved with school and universities to raise awareness about the challenges that women and girls face in the developing countries and how our choices here at home impact communities a world away. You can learn more about our activities on our Facebook page (Seeds to Sew International) or on our website at www.seedstosew.org. Alternatively, e-mail info@seedstosew.org if you’d like subscribe to our e-newsletter.
