Find SEWING MACHINES for the school
The school started a vocational training programme in 2008, to teach the students practical skills that will lead to improved employment opportunities when they leave school.
They would like to expand this programme by introducing sewing classes, so they need about 20 sewing machines.
The machines will also be used to make clothes which can be sold in the local area. This will be a valuable source of income for the school, an important step to long-term sustainability. They will also be able to make school uniforms, which will be cheaper than buying them or having them made elsewhere.
It will cost about $150 to buy a machine in LIberia, so it would be preferable if they could get them donated.
Please help us find organisations or companies that could donate new or used sewing machines to the school.
These must be manual machines, as the school does not have electricity.
Ideally, we would like to find organisations that are able to donate the machines and pay the shipping costs as well. If that is not possible, ideas on how we could meet those costs would be very welcome.
