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.

DIANE STEELE, Malawi Education Team, Sewing Instructor
Born in Californian, Diane’s home based business in Ojai California is inspired by her passion to sew and create Thoughtful Gifts of Art.
A dressmaker-designer and entrepreneur, Diane studied with a German-Swiss fashion designer patter maker for 2 years. Diane’s Mother taught her to sew when she was 5 years old and she has been sewing full time ever since. Diane’s keen sense of beauty and creativity enables her to blend function with artistic beauty, keeping her creations fresh and innovative. It is this passion which brought her to TGEW team, where she has been running “Community Sew In’s” and making menstrual kits for girls in need for our sister program in Malawi.
