Grace Filled Plate is thrilled to be a part of the Sucher Family/Missionary Ventures Sewing Ministry in the Dominican Republic. I would love to have you join me in the sponsorship of this amazing opportunity to make a positive impact in the world for Christ.
Four days a week 36 women gather in 2 groups to learn sewing and jewelry making. While these women are being taught practical skills, they are also showered with the love of Jesus. The vision for the ministry is to open up the classrooms 2 to 3 days a week, outside of classes, where these could women could simply come in to make goods that they could sell. A micro business.
In time, they would like to make these items available for sales in the U.S., eventually duplicating this model through small villages throughout the Dominican Republic. How exciting!
The expenses to run this incredible ministry are $300 a month plus the cost of fabric. In time, things such as shipping expenses will arise to ship these beautiful pieces stateside.
- $200/month for sewing teacher and program administrator
- $30/month for sewing machine maintenance
- Electricity costs
- Fabric costs
