Two more sewing machines were donated to Life in Africa

Peace Community Church of the Brethren

On September 26, Think Humanity board members spoke to the
Peace Community Church of the Brethren in Windsor, Colorado.
During our presentation we told the church how Think Humanity
purchases and sells handmade products from Acholi refugees. We
give 100 percent of our proceeds back to our projects in Africa. We
had a display (not for sale), however the nice people from the
church bought out our display!

This was totally unexpected so we gave back to the women that
made the jewelry by sending them money to purchase two more
treadle (manual) sewing machines. The sewing machines will help
refugee teen-moms to learn a trade. Think Humanity has donated
four treadle sewing machines to this project. The goal is to raise
money to purchase eleven more. For $80 each we can help these
young moms become self-reliant. This will give them a step up
from a life of poverty.

Special thanks to Jodi Bell of Peace Community Church.

New Life in Africa (LiA) is raising money for a Community Day Care

so that babies can get care instead of being strapped to the mothers’
backs as they learn a trade. To learn more about the day care project
