Review for Fount Of Mercy, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

Sewing Hope's approach of training teachers within existing community groups is a sustainable model for development. Sewing Hope's founder, Tara Hawks is dedicated to helping Ugandan women gain vocational skills so that they can earn a living for their families. With this end goal in mind, she constantly questioning her approach and seeking feedback from students to ensure that her efforts are effective. Other organizations that I encountered while in Uganda, were only distributing machines but not providing training. Sewing Hope, provides specialized vocational training by expert volunteers so the machinery is used to it full potential and is properly cared for over time.

With Tara Hawks now working full time, I believe Sewing Hope has clear goals and is on track to keep growing and expanding.
