The Sewing Machine Project- Africa

As the “Umuda Koşanlar Derneği” (Association of Runners to Hope), we believe that projects supporting sustainable development in Africa are quite important for the region. Therefore, we continue to stand by local people in urgent need of help with the humanitarian aids while bringing out new projects in the same context.

Last April, we managed “The Sewing Machine Project” in the Ashura orphanage in Darussalaam, Tanzania so that 55 orphans and local women can learn tailoring activities like sewing and embroidery and have a chance to be employed. With the supports of our precious donors, we provided them an opportunity to stand on their own feet and support their own families financially.
