Due to cultural traditions in Kenya, women are undervalued and often unemployed. Women are not able to provide for themselves and their families if widowed or single. Missions for Orphans works to help women to earn income that will assist them in providing for their families and gain independence. This is done through the education of the trade of becoming a seamstress.
When taught to work with the sewing machine they will have the skills to produce garments from scratch, with material purchased inorder to sell them for a profit. Upon completion of the program and after graduation, each person who finishes the class, a sewing machine and material is provided for the start of their own business.
Each Sewing machine is 10000 Kenyan Shillings ($100 American Dollars)
