Support a 10 month scholarship at the cost of $30 per month per student. Each student will receive fashion design tuition and skills training as well as TM instruction and checkings, empowering them with life-long tools and techniques to improve their inner and outer lives. Learn more about the program here.
One of the most basic needs for the program is having enough good quality electric sewing machines, so each student can have their own machine and workspace for their creations.
Sometimes power outages occur in this rural area so having a good supply of manual sewing machines will keep students going in their projects without interruption no matter what the outside situation.
We're starting from scratch, so even the most basic items are needed to get the program set up and running smoothly and comfortably. Tables and chairs can be built or repurposed from the community with your donation funds for materials.
Beautiful fabrics native to Zimbabwe will be purchased to provide students with plenty of materials to begin their creative pursuits in fashion design. Your donation for fabrics will open up a world of possibilities for our students.
Needles, thread, scissors, tape measures, pins, buttons, and many more supplies are needed to start the sewing and ensure the uninterrupted work of our students and they learn and earn.
Donate any amount you can afford. Every little bit will help us to realise Peta's dream of empowering women and girls in Zimbabwe to improve their inner and outer lives.
If you are living in the United States and would like your donation to be tax deductible, you can make your donation through Global Projects for Peace. Every dollar counts. Thank you!
