Caring for my grandparents & siblings. Tailoring equipment will allow me to succeed!

I need to pay for my sewing machine, living expenses and pay for an apprenticeship with an experienced tailor to further my skills

My need and situation

I am a 20-year-old survivior of obstetric fistula. I'm an orphan, and I live with and help care for my elderly grandparents and 2 younger brothers. I have completed an Introduction to Tailoring program.

My goal is to have my own tailoring shop so I can support myself and care for my family.

I need to pay for my sewing machine, living expenses and pay for an apprenticeship with an experienced tailor to further my skills.

Meeting this need will help me because once I gain the skills needed I will be better able to support myself and assist my family.
