Good News From GHNI

By Guest Blogger Mary Schmidt, Marketing Troubleshooter

Following on my post of last week, "Teach us," is the cry of the women  where we introduced the Adopt-A-Village project we're working on with Global Hope Network International (GHNI).

We all get so much bad news; it's great to read the good.  And, Global Hope Network International shares much good news.  No matter how dire the situation, things are improving here and there.  People can accomplish incredible things with just a little help.  

Camba2For example, a group of women have formed a sewing enterprise in Indonesia.  From the news report: 

These women are amazing! Their sewing enterprises have taken off, and they’re so proud of the progress they’re making in their TCD Income Generation program.

There are two sewing groups: the beginners group and the advanced group. The beginners group is using this month to practice sewing on old rags and pieces of clothes, and the advanced group has already begun to make beautiful aprons to sell. The money generated from the sales of these aprons will help the women pay back the investment for the new sewing machines. Once they have made a certain amount of aprons, they will own their own machine.

That's the "new" machine there. I think my grandmother had one just like it.  

Camba4And, here's Tiffany, one of GHNI's trainers with some of the women.  

Like I've said before. It doesn't take much to make a big difference.  

P.S. I'll find out where we can get some aprons. :)
