Location: Fountain Hills

Total Budget: $4,000

Areas of Focus: Disease prevention and treatment, Water and sanitation, Maternal and child health

Activity Type: Health: General

Summary: Sewing equipment and fabric provided to a local Christian group that sews garments which are shipped to Africa.

Stichers of Hope is a local group of women in Fountain Hills that sew washable menstrual hygiene kits, dresses for girls, shorts for young boys and beanie hats that are distributed to five African Countries by missionaries. In 2018, the group has already produced over 500 garments that were forwarded through the missionary network. The group is totally funded through donations.

This Grant will fund the purchase of a self threading serger, 2 sewing machines and various fabrics for the group. The sewing equipment will replace existing machines that are old and inefficient. The fabric will augment the production process.

The Fountain Hills Rotary Club has assisted the Stichers with funding and logistical support for the past 2 years. Wives of Rotarians work with the group on a weekly basis.
