What We Do

Sewing Seeds International began its first project in Sierra Leone, Africa in 2002. We sent a team of eight trainers to the war-torn country and provided sewing machines, materials and a beginner’s sewing training program to 30 war-widows. We followed up with an advanced sewing training program for these women in June of that same year. To date we have trained over 120 women in Sierra Leone, Africa.

  • 2 students have set up their own sewing training programs,
  • 10 have opened their own shops,
  • 15 are sewing and selling clothing and other items at the market,
  • 4 have contracts for school and church uniforms,
  • 25 are sewing for themselves and others for a small income,
  • 10 are doing repairs for a small income,
  • 1 is in school learning to repair sewing machines, and
  • 85% are sewing clothing for themselves and their families, including sewing their own children’s uniforms.

We also have sewing training programs in Ukraine and Peru.

In each country, we have developed children’s programs specifically to suit the needs of the area where we are working. These include teaching English, Vacation Bible School, outreach programs to prisons and orphanages, Canadian Christmas, and in Ukraine we are partnering with a local church in Novovolynsk in building an orphanage facility called Elli-Rose’s Place.
