I just received a report from Mary Mkunda about the Pastor’s Wives sewing projects. Last year, I was at the Bishop Stanway School and asked the Headmaster how much a uniform cost (I wanted to buy one for a pupil). He told me he was having trouble with their supplier and was unsatisfied with the service and quality. I asked if the women at Msalato could make the uniforms, many of them have those treadle sewing machines. He said have them make a sample and he would consider it. We talked with Mary and she talked with the wives who had completed the Women’s Entrepreneur Course and they said they could do it. We gave a loan to get them started and off they went. I will try to attach the financial report from Mary, but it has been a success and they hope to expand to other schools as well. Jessie
