PROGRAMS & WORKSHOPS 2018-06-28T21:26:39+00:00

Join local Seamstress, Diane Steele  for our SEW IN Camp where we will sew menstruation kits, and in doing so, provide for the girls in our sister program, GEM, in Malawi.

Our team will then be traveling to Malawi, to deliver these kits, where girls miss up to a week of school every month because they are unequipped to care for their periods. Along with the kits, Diane is bringing a sewing machine that has been donated to GEM, which will be used to teach Yamiko and her girls how to sew their own menstrual kits and in turn have an endless supply, keeping girls in school, and off to a bright future, and a better world.

For more information on our SEW IN Camp, please email info@thegirlsempowermentworkshop.org
